Sometimes (20 % of attempts) NetBeans just disappears when used while working with Remote Desktop. Other times, the window remains but is not drawn at all (entirely white or snippets from other applications that used to be on top of NetBeans). 

Starting NetBeans during a Remote Desktop session usually works, but the transition from local (physical) machine use and remote-desktoping in seems to make it crash. Maybe it is the design change that Windows automatically does?

What java version are you using? It seems more like a java bug (something like this

Thanks for your answer. On the computer from the attached messages.log.1 I used the menu item Help > About to find the following:
  Java: 1.7.0_67; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 24.65-b04
  Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.7.0_67-b01

However, I will ask my colleague to report his Java version as well, he has very similar problems.

This has been happening to me for a couple of years. Both in NetBeans 7 and NetBeans 8 and on several machines over this time. The only thing in common is Windows 7. I've had several version of Java over this time, upgrading along the way. I don't believe this is related to Java.

I don't know why this was resolved as incomplete. I guess because we can't give reproducible test cases? I find it frustrating, but I have no idea what causes it; it's not reproducible.

I just ran into this.  I was in the middle of making a number of edits - which I hadn't saved it.  Can't identify anything special about by environment.  NetBeans was running a debug platform, on JDK 1.8.0_111 under Windows 10.  I locked by desktop - and then accessed it from a Windows 7 system using RDP.  When the desktop came up NetBeans was no longer running.  On restarting NetBeans, the changes window was empty - and on inspection - all of my recent changes were lost.  Lesson I guess is to 'save all' prior to locking my desktop.
