This version of Kaffe is from Debian GNU/Linux unstable.

I did: 
novalis at banks:~$ appletviewer http://novalis.org/set.html

My ancient Set applet came up just fine.  I clicked Player 1, and then
three cards making up a set.  The three cards were removed, but the new
cards didn't appear until I hid the appletviewer window under my
Evolution window and exposed it again (or switched to another desktop
and back).

To test this, you don't have to actually know how to play Set.  Just
click Cheat (you will get an exception -- I don't know if this is my bug
or Kaffe's, but you can ignore it). Then click Player 1 and click the
three highlighted cards in any order.  

The web page listed has a link to the source code for the applet (please
excuse its excretable style -- like I said, it's old).  The applet used
to work fine on Sun's JRE, and on whatever shipped with Win98.
