Running NetBeans 4.0 beta 1 on OS X 10.3.5 with 
Java 142 Update 2 FC (Also duplicated with latest 
Q build)

I installed NetBeans and created a simple "Hello 
World" type project using the Java Application 
project template. It built and ran.

I noticed that when the dialog box came up, the 
file type combo box was blank. I have tried 
setting it to the Project type, but that doesn't 
do anything.

default button (binking), which means thet the correct button is hard
to find. We've already filled a bug against the Apple JDK. Sorry for
the inconveninece but we'll probably have to live with that for 4.0. 

The "Open Project Folder" button works for me and really opens the
