I think that's something related to IcedTea, sorry (we have some open issue dependent on it, but we can't do so much) ... so I think that the best option for now is that in your environment if you could try even with an updated Oracle JRE 6 or 7 .

I'm saying the Java Cache, not Browser cache (at least on Windows there is a related config panel). But even this could not help here ...

This should be the first to have problems (the Scripting Tutorial):
Maybe in IcedTea there is a trick to enable rhino support inside the plugin (but it needs to be available in the jsr-223 way), if you find a way, tell us, so we can write an info somewhere. As a sample take a look here:
try to run some demo from there and tell us what happens ... maybe there is something we can do to make all them work.
When I have some time, I'll try to setup a simple/minimal sample (without Pivot) under our tests subproject (under trunk).
if someone with more expertise than us on IcedTead has some info and wants to help us fixing this (and other IcedTea-related things), please tell to us.

Yes, it's a good idea that sometimes arise ... could you add a jira issue for this ?
Thanks for now.
