Thanks for your tests. Below is my results.

I don't know how to select the VM for Sweethome3d in this case.
sun-java6-fonts depends on sun-java6-jre (without openjdk alternative
dependency). So, it's forcefully installed.

However, under this condition, there is no difference between Thai
text displays in dialogs and in the main view. They are both displayed

I confirm this. With sun-java6-jre installed and openjdk-6-jre removed,
Josm can display Thai correctly without sun-java6-fonts. And the overall
fonts are rendered with a little bit smoother edge (more anti-aliased blur).

But on OpenJDK, it requires sun-java6-fonts. Otherwise, Thai would
be displayed with boxes.

It still works well on both VMs in my box. And Thai is also displayed
properly both in dialog boxes and main view.

At first, I though th_TH locale might make the difference. But it's still the
same under C locale.

It sounds so.
