Description Mikhail Kondratyev 2006-10-10 14:15:55 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
 - run Netbeans with jdk 1.6 specified
 - in the project tree, try to drag the Runtime tab to some other position
When dragging the tab, you will see black aquare area being dragged, after you
drop it somewhere there will be problems with Welcome screen repainting

You can reproduce the repaint problems with any other window and with oher
actions. Sometimes the IDE becomes unusable because of these problems.

Workaround: when running the IDE set
or use java 1.5

We can avoid this bug if installer sets the UseQuartz option to true during install

More detailed description steps:

There will be problems repainting the Welcome screen and other windows

Is this issue is reproducible with the pure NetBeans IDE or only with Java Tools 
Bundle/NetBeans IDE + EntPack? If the answer is NO (the issue is NOT 
reproducible with pure NetBeans IDE) that all the next written stuff should be 

I do think that this key should not be added by EntPack/JavaTools installer. 
There is no special installer for NetBeans IDE on MacOSX, it is delivered as .
tar.gz file. So the IDE "installer" on MacOSX can`t even add this flag to 
netbeans.conf. As for configuring IDE we (EntPack/JavaTools installer) try to 
behave in the same maner as IDE installer does. So it is not desirable for us to 
do the things about IDE that differs from IDE installer itself.

Most probably this should be added to release notes or just add as a comment to 
So I think that ide/documentation is the right component/subcomponent to 
reassign this issue to.

Comment 3 Mikhail Kondratyev 2006-10-13 19:01:45 UTC
This is reproducible with pure Netbeans installation too.
A similar bug is filed against Netbeans.
I don't mind release noting this but as far as I know the corresponding Netbeans
bug will be releasenoted. Adding whiteboard key for docs to track this.
Comment 4 Annette Wegscheider 2006-10-20 17:10:33 UTC
The current NB 5.5 release notes do not mention this issue at all. See
mikk, please add the # of the issue in NetBeans so we can reference it.

Comment 7 dlipin 2007-02-12 10:07:07 UTC
The issue should be added to the EntPack 5.5.1 Beta release notes.
