Please enable the gray rect fix (bug 4967886) on non-windows platforms.
There was a lot of positive feedback from this fix on windows, it's 
too bad it isn't enabled by default on unix.

Enabling this may significantly improve Swing performance on remote
server (and possibly on sunrays), since the true backbuffer will be 
on the server side.

EVALUATION Swing's true double buffering has now been enabled on Unix. Currently it is only enabled if backing store is not on and OGL is not turned on. The OGL support will be turned on a later date after a handful of OGL fixs.
