So far as I know, what online members can download is just as fresh (or stale) as what paid members get. It's just that online members don't get access to as much stuff. (For example, paid members get access to beta software.)

One of the basic rules of debugging applies: any given bug is far more likely to be in your code than in the library. (Not "must be", but definitely "far more likely to be".) Can you create a *simple* program that demonstrates the problem? Perhaps, a program that has only two JTextFields, starts the checking without any user interaction, and so on. Get rid of as much of *your* code as you can. (Check out the recent discussions of what goes into a good bug report.)
