Since today josm is no longer loading its preferences at startup for me, giving this error messages:

If I end josm now and start it again I get the same error, so josm is also not able to read the newly created preferences file. I already removed my .josm folder which did not change anything.
The two things I have changed recently:

  • rebuild java with new timezone config
  • updated to josm 4667
