Turn off desktop effects. Java GUI applications should now render correctly -
although they donot seem to use the GTK LAF by default.
Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2006-11-20 15:52:26 EST
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.
