Just to follow up... I reported this on the NetBeans NetCat list where
Martin Entlicher pointed out the possible issue which I've confirmed.  This
is filed as Issue 241082 in the NetBeans bug tracker.
https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=241082

There's a simple workaround for now.

Go to Tools -> Options -> Java -> Java Debugger -> Visual Debugging and
uncheck "Track locations of component hierarchy changes".


Cheers,

Scott
