I had problems with the IBM java also. It worked great the first time
through (running Limewire) but, after that it would always tell me that
it couldn't allocate the needed memory are exit right away.

So I had to switch back to blackdown. I haven't run any actual tests or
anything, but the IBM one seemed faster (probably because it is JIT
enabled), but atleast the blackdown java works.
