Description of problem: Java GUI don't render with Desktop Effects active
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Latest updated FC6
with Sun Java 1.5.0_09-b03
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Sun Java 1.5.0_09-b03 following the recommended procedure by building
RPMs with JPackage RPM sources.
2. Install NetBeans and follow up by installing SQuireL database client
3. Make sure Desktop effects are on (check Preferences/Dektop Effects)
4. Run NetBeans
5. Run SQuireL DB client
Empty Window displays.
Window with the application UI componenets renedered within it.
Additional info: Sun Java v1.5.0_09-b03 installed the recommended way by
creating RPMs using JPackage source RPMs.
Turn off desktop effects. Java GUI applications should now render correctly -
although they donot seem to use the GTK LAF by default.
This is not our bug. This is a known issue with Java's window display code,
where it waits for a ReparentNotify before drawing. Since compiz is not a
reparenting window manager, this notification never comes.
Please file this issue with Sun.
