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."
