A simple solution might be to automatically look for a valid JRE when the
setting is invalid. I'll attach a patch for this.

Of course, a better solution would be to check whether the currently selected
JRE is still valid according to the updated javavendors.xml.

I am a friend of "simple solutions" :)
A similar change must be done in in the javavm service (stoc), which is
important for windows.

Additionally we need a better string in case no Java is found. For example:

"This version of needs a  at least a JRE 5. However, it could not
find one on this machine. Please install one and rerun or got to
the options dialog and search youself a suitable JRE"

We need to take care that the string for Mac is different because the options
dialog is in a different menu. Then the specification needs to be updated too.
