Product Version         = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201203090400) (#9a710a8e3e80)
  Operating System        = Mac OS X version 10.7.3 running on amd64
  Java; VM; Vendor        = 1.7.0_04-ea; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 23.0-b16; Oracle Corporation
  Runtime                 = Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.7.0_04-ea-b15
no exact steps to reproduce, but randomly when starting ide into the same userdir, IDE starts completely blank (see screenshot). To be more specific, everything seems to be ok for ~1second and then all content of window (titles, nodes,...) disappears. Popup is displayed correctly, as well as e.g. text can be copy-pasted.
Comment 1 Stanislav Aubrecht 2012-03-14 15:59:28 UTC
running the IDE under debugger doesn't indicate any problems - correct foreground colors are set, correct fonts being used but invoking Graphics.drawString() does not paint any text.
all other visual artifacts (backgrounds, borders etc) seem to be painting fine, just no text is showing - except for tooltips and and popup menus.
Comment 2 Stanislav Aubrecht 2012-03-14 16:04:58 UTC
btw, the IDE runs by default with the following java switches: 


(not sure if they have any effect on this issue though)

Comment 4 Tomas Danek 2012-03-14 16:12:58 UTC
as expected, reproduced also in NB 7.1.1 -> stopper for bundle

We need to solve it for 7u4, if not it will end up in our bugcount. In case we will not be able to push on that, I would vote for RELEASE NOTES - it's not enough, but it will inform users about possible workaround.

Tomas, could you please verify this issue ? Thanks in advance.
Comment 8 Tomas Danek 2012-06-08 12:22:03 UTC
verified - haven seen it since then.
