The JavaDoc for JScrollPane.isValidateRoot currently says:
     * Calls <code>revalidate</code> on any descendant of this
     * <code>JScrollPane</code>.  For example,
     * the viewport's view, will cause a request to be queued that
     * will validate the <code>JScrollPane</code> and all its descendants.

Unfortunately, that isn't what the method does. It should be more in line with
what JComponent.isValidateRoot says.
