      Description

      Policytool is behaving very weird on NT. Probably this may be an AWT
      problem, I don't know.

      1) "Add Policy Entry" displays a form for CodeBase and SignedBy with fields
      in black color. Whatever I type, I cannot see in these fields. Probably,
      the letters are also displayed in black (black on black ?)

      2) If I make the window larger or smaller, then it weird graphics is
      getting displayed.

      This was noticed on NT, with JDK1.2J build.

      Note that all these things work well on Solaris

      i attached a small program which simulates a subset of policytool,
      which i believe exposes the bug and narrows the scope as to where
      it might lie. this program opens a window with a single button.
      upon pressing the button, a dialog box appears with a textfield.
      that's it.
        
      on solaris, the background in the textfield appears white.
      therefore a user typing characters into the textfield can see them.
        
      however, on NT, the background in the textfield appears black.
      because of this, you can't see the characters typed in.
