Description
The bug is reported at: http://www.java.net/forum/topic/jdk/java-se-snapshots-project-feedback/swing-rendering-issue-osx-lionjdk-7-dual-monitor?force=277

i'd like to report an issue when using some swing components in jdk 7, running osx lion and under netbeans 7.1 ide, there was corrupted behaviour on their behalf. when the JFileChooser window would popup, all the text elements would disappear from every component. this behaviour is depicted in the pictures below wich represent a sequence in actions (pre-popup, popup, post-popup)

THIS WOULD ONLY HAPPEN WHEN I USED DUAL MONITOR MODE ON MY MACBOOK (ITS NATIVE DISPLAY AND AN EXTERNAL DVI-INTERFACED MONITOR). THE PROBLEM WOULD GO AWAY AS SOON AS I RETURNED TO SINGLE MONITOR MODE.

(see the images atthe link above)

Comments
EVALUATION I was able to reproduce the artifacts with b216 (iMac dual monitor setup). I can also confirm that the problem isn't reproducible with latest build b227. Likely, it's a duplicate of an existing issue (for example, 7125723).
