FWIW, I installed Java 1.5.0 without a problem, then downloaded and ran
Azureus from my ~/bin directory. Works, no problems, no crashes and
it's been up for over 5 days now.

I suppose you could argue the update shouldn't have gone ahead without
checking your version of java first, but arguing about weather it broke
itself or not is a moot point as there's not much you can do about it
now. You could always switch to another BT client, or just update your
java and be done with it.
