JComboBox hides end of text when height > default

    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      1.6.0_01
      also 1.4.2_14

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows XP pro SP2

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      using Windows XP desktop theme

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      JCombobBox paints an extra space to the left of the button which hides the end of the selection in the editor. The problem occurs when a larger font is used to cause the component to be higher that the default font. It also happens if a size is set using setPreferredSize or setSize which is taller regardless of the font.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Occurs with or without a layout manager on a panel.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Should see the entire selection and be able to type up to the arrow.
      ACTUAL -
      See all but the last bit, and typing stops short of the arrow.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
