Does SAP support JVM 1.5.0 for the SAPgui 6.40 Rev 6 for the Mac?

On Tuesday evening, Apple released a software update for Java 2 Platform Standard Edition (J2SE) 5.0 Release 4 for Mac OS X v10.4.5 or later. When you install the update, it will change the default version of Java virtual machine from Java 1.4.2 to Java 1.5.0. Apple also posted instructions for changing the default back to Java 1.4.2 at <http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303526>.

When I launch SAPgui 6.40 Rev 4 or SAPgui 6.40 Rev 6 for the Mac, they both now use JVM 1.5.0. Does SAP support that, or should I follow Apple's instructions for changing the default JVM back to 1.4.2?

Here is the information from the "About SAPgui" boxes.
