Sorry, it did just look a lot like refiling the same bug, and I made an

libcsv-java uses dh_javadoc, whereas libmatthew-java generates it in the
upstream makefile which is then installed in a separate package. The
upstream makefile _does_ use the -link option pointed at the online sun
documentation. I did try and override it to point to local documentation
from the dependencies, but it seems I failed, I'll rewrite the way
it's done upstream, which should mask this issue, but I still think
there is a bug in gjdoc.

I tried using sun java 6 version of javadoc, and that merely produces a
warning about failure to connect to the url. I think gjdoc's behaviour
is a bug, particularly with the two different errors, only one of which
is fatal.
