Matlabpool disabled by Apple's Java update (again)

Asked by Andi

Hi all, Two days ago I updated Java to build 1.6.0_51-b11-457-10M4509 from Apple's Software Update server (OSX 10.6.8, Matlab R2011a). As a consequence, matlabpool won't work. The same thing happened sometime in February (I think with updating from _39 to _41 or _45) and the good people at Mathworks had a patch available within a few days. Is there a workaround for 1.6.0_51? Thanks in advance!

Answering my own question... The Mathworks engineers were fairly quick now, too: they pointed me to the old solution that works now as well. It can be found here:
