The situation is a little complex :-)
* Apple still maintains Java 6 on 32 and 64-bit Mac OS X
* Oracle maintains Java 7 64-bit Mac but has dropped support for 32-bit Mac (if it happens to work, great)
* Henri Gomez and others that contribute to the OpenJDK are still trying to provide 32-bit Mac compatibility, but it's on a best efforts basis
So you probably should do two things:
1.) Report the bug to http://openjdk.java.net/projects/macosx-port/
project so that Henri etc have a chance to fix it (please submit as much detail as possible)
2.) Detect OpenJDK 7 on 32-bit Mac and state it's not supported + add that to the FAQ as well

So I've forked an open source project and put it on Github. Travis-CI is employed, but I've hit a snag:
- OracleJDK7 and OpenJDK6 pass green
- OpenJDK7 fails a test, consistently the same one
I'm on OS X[masked] with Oracle's latest and greatest, and an OpenJDK from the google-code site. I cannot reproduce the problem locally.
The only thing I've found in searching for clues is that OpenJDK is apparently a bit dodgy in 32-bit forms. Travis appears to be 32-bit.
As an engineer I'm looking for a solution. As someone with a few month's experience with Java / Maven / etc, I am rather lost at this point.
Explaining that "it works except on 32-bit OpenJDK7" in the readme would suck... Can anyone offer advice/assistance to help avoid that?
