i managed to get a visible gui with xmonad but it would still be very
unusable because resizing does not work on the components. 
I found the suspected reason in the manpage of awesome that also suffers
from this bug:

| Java applications which use the XToolkit/XAWT backend may draw grey
| windows only. The XToolkit/XAWT backend breaks ICCCM-compliance in
| recent JDK 1.5 and early JDK 1.6 versions, because it assumes a

| (which doesnt contain the XToolkit/XAWT backend) or you can set
| the following environment variable (to use the older Motif backend
| instead): AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit

Unfortunately, this works only with SUN's Java and not with
OpenJDK at the moment because openmotif is non-free, see also
this Ubuntu bug #211105 [1]
