Yes, looks like a Swing JTable bug.  Re-assigning to Tania Bento.
Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-09-27 10:23:25 EDT
This is fixed now in GNU Classpath CVS.  We'll close this bug report once we've
backported the fixes to Rawhide libgcj.
Comment 3 Rik van Riel 2006-12-23 12:10:15 EST
Do you have any idea yet when this fix will be moved into rawhide?

It's been 3 months since the bug has been fixed upstream, but Fedora (and RHEL5)
are still broken :(
Comment 4 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-03-07 12:11:16 EST
We retested this yesterday against the new Rawhide GCC which includes Tania's
fix for the JTable bug.  Unfortunately, the applet hits another bug in libgcj's
java.util.Currency class (the applet works on GNU Classpath's version of this
class).  Tania is going to backport the fix from GNU Classpath to Rawhide.

I checked her patch in to gcc svn trunk and the RH 4.1 branch.
It is r123513 on the branch.
Comment 6 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-04-19 12:15:55 EDT
Fixed in libgcj-4.1.2-9.
