A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
As of build 40 for java 8 our programs display speed has dropped dramatically. We find that the time to paint an image or a string went from negligible to 4 or 5 milliseconds. Total time to paint graphics and strings on screen went from about 100 milliseconds to over 1 second.
REGRESSION. Last worked in version 8u31
This bug can be reproduced always.
---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
Unfortunately, despite various attempts we have been unable to reproduce this problem in a small amount of code.

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Interestingly we found that avoiding double buffering avoids the problem. It comes at the cost of the display flickering, of course.
