I read somewhere (can't remember where though) that "wmname lg3d" is one cure for Java issues (for the Sun/Oracle offering at least, and it worked for me, with menus mostly working). 'wmname' belongs in a package called suckless-tools on my Debian box (it just sets the window-manager name property on the root window). From its man-page: "wmname is a nice utility to fix problems with JDK versions and other broken programs, which are assuming a reparenting window manager." Cheers, -- Fred
