Not sure if you've seen this yet, but Sun appears to have rejected the 
IBM bid as being insufficient.  The claim is that they wanted out of the 
exclusivity bit, likely to try to get a better deal from someone else. 
So it seems IBM yanked the deal.

Of course this is all hearsay, but it is on WSJ and USA-Today's site ... 
not sure if this makes it any more real ...

If so, Sun's board says ... whoops?
