Black Box with Drag and Drop with multiple monitors


I am using the Eclipse Theme and when I have my application on the left(primary) monitor and detach a panel and drop it on my second monitor the window goes all black. If I resize the black window my panel will show. The second monitor works correctly if I detach the panel to my primary monitor first and then drag it to the second monitor.

Has anyone seen this before? Is there a workaround for this issue?

I should add I am seeing this issue with the Preview Version 1.1.2 - 1h version

Issues with multiple monitors are known. But as I do not have access to any system with a second monitor, I cannot reproduce and hence not fix these issues (tests with virtual machines did not help).

To update my statistic: What kind of OS do you use, and which Java version?

Thanks for responding. - java version “1.6.0_37”, windows 7

Its sounds like my best option might be to debug the problem locally and submit the fix to you to code review and include once I find it. Any suggestions on where in the code to start looking?

I had the same problem and found this out. This problem only exists with windooze7 and java6. If you use java7, there is no problem anymore. And there is already a other thread with a workaround:
