No exact steps to reproduce, but randomly when starting NetBeans, it starts completely blank (see screenshot). To be more specific, everything seems to be ok for ~1second and then all content of window (titles, nodes,...) disappears. Popup is displayed correctly, as well as e.g. text can be copy-pasted.
Running under debugger doesn't indicate any problems - correct foreground colors are set, correct fonts being used but invoking Graphics.drawString() does not paint any text. All other visual artifacts (backgrounds, borders etc) seem to be painting fine, just no text is showing - except for tooltips and and popup menus.
NetBeans runs by default with the following java switches:
(not sure if they have any effect on this issue though)
