Description
FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.6.0_01"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_01-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_01-b06, mixed mode, sharing)

ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
In WindowsPopupMenuSeparatorUI.paint(), only one line below the separator line is painted, instead of the region above and below the separator line.

    public void paint(Graphics g, JComponent c) {
        Dimension s = c.getSize();
	int y = s.height / 2;

	g.setColor(c.getForeground());
	g.drawLine(1, y - 1, s.width - 2, y - 1); // <- only one line is painted

	g.setColor(c.getBackground());
	g.drawLine(1, y,     s.width - 2, y);
    }

This results in a problem that setting the background of the separator only has effect on that one single line. The remaining region stays white.

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Run the example code and click on the menu.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
The menu items and separator all show a cyan background.
ACTUAL -
The separator shows a white background.

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Extend WindowsPopupMenuSeparatorUI and paint correctly:

MySeparatorUI extends com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsPopupMenuSeparatorUI
{
    public void paint(Graphics g, JComponent c)
    {
        Dimension s = c.getSize();
        int y = s.height / 2;

        g.setColor(c.getBackground());
        g.fillRect(0, 0, s.width, s.height);

        g.setColor(c.getForeground());
        g.drawLine(1, y - 1, s.width - 2, y - 1);
    }
}
