Description
Has anyone succeeded to start glossitope on Linux GNOME with Sun's JDK?

Site : http://www.glossitope.org
URL : http://www.glossitope.org/downloads/daily/Glossitope_buffered.jnlp

I'm trying it on Ubuntu 7.04 and Fedora Core 6 GNOME but it always fails.

        at com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel.initSystemColorDefaults(GTKLookAndFeel.java:1267)
        at com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel.loadStyles(GTKLookAndFeel.java:1509)
        at com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel.access$000(GTKLookAndFeel.java:37)
        at com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel$WeakPCL$1.run(GTKLookAndFeel.java:1449)

(full stack will be attached into attachment field)

Changing locale to C does not help. Very simlier NPE happens in some bug
reports (6389282) so I tried the latest JDK7 but it also does not help.
When I switched Desktop from GNOME to KDE, it works fine. Any GTK L&F
problem is still happening?

EVALUATION Could you please supply me with a simple test case. glossitope is way to heavy for testing agains it. And please take a look at the 6389282 evaluation. I wrote there that it could be a ploblem of not following the rule of the creation components on the EDT. Check that and your code please.

EVALUATION According to stack trace the problem is in GTK LaF, so I'm reassigning CR to Swing team. Though I have to say that on my Ubuntu 7.04 everything works fine.
