The frame can't be instantiated because it has setDefaultCloseOperation set to WindowConstants.EXIT_ON_CLOSE. Exiting on
close makes it the main frame of an application rather than a reusable component that could be added into another form.
But still we could perhaps identify this case and show a better error message.
