    While experimenting with Jin 2.13.1 native version, I noted the following
    peculularities:

    First, I have been unable to run the native version from Windows XP Pro.
    When I try, a small dialog window opens with the text "Jin launch error",
    nothing else, other than the close window 'X' in the upper right corner.

    To get audio working in the Linux native version, I did the following:

    After untarring the native version into it's own exclusive directory,
    I renamed the executable to 'jin.nat'.  Then I copied the jin script
    from the normal Jin 2.13.1 archive, adding the following two lines to
    it's end:

    export JAVA_OPTS='-Dfree.util.audio.player=free.util.audio.ExternalAppAudioPlayer'
    ./jin.nat

    With this scheme, audio sometimes works (but is by no means reliable)
    in the first instance of Jin.  But if you start another instance of Jin
    (any version) it will not have audio. I know this because I always run
    two instances of Jin:  connected to FICS and ICC respectively.

    I also noted that text cannot be selected in the main console for cut
    and paste operations in the Linux native version.  Of course I cannot
    test this in the Windows version, since I can't get the native version
    to run there.

    SYSTEM:

    SuSE 9.3 Pro.; Kernel 2.6
    Audio: built-in AC'97 nForce MCP2SL
    2 GHz AMD Sempron 3000+; 512 MB memory

      Under the heading "To get audio working..."  I should have added: copied in the two files 'play' and 'sox' from the Jin 2.12.1 archive.
