A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
The problem is that JOptionPane dialogs malfunction when I use NVIDIA proprietary accelerated graphics driver on Ubuntu. If I bring up a dialog several times, eventually the internals of the dialog are not shown -- the text and buttons are not drawn.
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Call this function several times with the same java.awt.Component parameter (same component):
go to http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/dialog.html
and run the first web start example of the dialogs ("The DialogDemo Example"). Try to click "Show it!" button several times. You will not be able to show the dialog more than 10-12 time without seeing the problem.
This bug can be reproduced always.
