I have CCed the imagej-devel list, since this discussion may interest other developers. I chose imagej-devel instead of fiji-devel because although the 3D_Viewer plugin does not ship on the core ImageJ update site, a version of it does ship with ImageJ1. So it is not really a "Fiji-specific" plugin.

I hope you guys saw this page at some point:
Indeed, shading the dependencies is the most robust way of shipping two versions of the same libraries in ImageJ right now without causing conflicts. There are still disadvantages though, as discussed at the above link. But if it is working for you, that is OK.

All Macs? If any were Windows, did you try the updated experimental bundle I linked before?
For one thing, that bundle uses an updated version of the 3D Viewer that never takes the liberty of trying to install Java 3D .
If it would be helpful, I could also prepare OS X and/or Linux versions of such a bundle.

If you guys are feeling motivated, you could do more testing on various platforms of the code changes I have done. It would be great to get the JOGL version of Java 3D 1.6 shipping with Fiji.
I am insanely busy through at least mid June, but will try to make time to work on this before July 1st (since after that point, I have a moratorium on coding in order to work on papers for a while).
