      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.5.0_05"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_05-b05)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_05-b05, mixed mode, sharing)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      There appears to be an undocumented bad intereaction between
      explicitely setting the UI and removing all file filters, even temporarily.
      If the latter is done before setting the ui, trying to display a file dialog
      will throw an exception but not if the ui was set prior to messing with
      the filters. Maybe it is possible to make the code more robust against
      this or to include a warning in the docs?

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Run the attached program: it will not bomb. Then move the setUI
      line to the bottom of the constructor and try again: it will.
