A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Deserialization of java.awt.Container, which has JComboBox and which was previously added to JFrame, produces NullPointerException on JDK 1.7, while on JDK 1.6 and 1.5 it does not.

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Compile and run the attached source code.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Both windows with titles ???why why why ??? and ???deserialize ??? and with identical contents should be displayed on the desktop. No exception should be thrown.
ACTUAL -
NullPointerException is thrown (see below).
