        here is a quote from mail from ###@###.###

        The test to reproduce the problem:

        import javax.swing.*;

        public class WmTest extends JFrame {

        public WmTest () {
            JLabel l = new JLabel ("WM Test");

            this.getContentPane().add(l);
            this.setSize(256, 256);

            //this.pack();
            this.setVisible (true);
        }

        public static void
        main (String args[]) {
            WmTest r = new WmTest ();
        }

        }
