Submenus doesn't display correctly in some swing applications

Description of problem:
I have noticed the problem in the java based admin console of fedora directory
server. The problem is that whenever I select a submenu, it the sub menu doesn't
show up. If I use Sun JDK 1.6 instead, the submenus shows up properly, so my
conclusion is that the problem is in java-1.7.0-icedtea, rather than in th
sfedora directoy server admin console (fedora-idm-console).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
used in combination with
fedora-idm-console-1.1.0-5.fc6 from the fedora directory server project.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora directory server, and its admin console
a) Log in as root
b) Set up the fedora-ds yum repositories
Make sure that java-1.7.0-icedtea is installed, then do
yum install fedora-ds
c) Run the configuration scripts:
Make sure that you don't have any other LDAP server installed, then run:
use default values.
Make sure to remember the cn=Directory Manager password, and the administration
Run fedora-idm-console as root
Use the login parameters as follows:
User-Id: cn=Directory Manager
password: as you remembered it from the setup script
Administration Url: http://localhost:adminport
You should now have the admin console up and running.
Fully expand the tree to the left so that you can see a "Directory Server"
in the tree. Double click it to open it.
A new window appears where you under the "view" menu will find some active
No submenus appear regardless of what submenu you select.
Submenus will be displayed. E.g if you selected the "Display>" submenu you
should see a submenu popping up containing the check items:
I tested this with JDK 1.6 and IcedTea.
The submenus show up for both:
1. Double click Directory Server
2. In the new window, select "view" from the menu. No submenus.
3. Select Tab "Directory", then select "view" from them menu. There are
submenus, such as "Display"...
The menus/submenus change depending what tab has been selected. After
double-clicking on the Directory Server, the task tab is selected by default. Is
it possible you didn't select a different tab?
