JFrame.setTitle() does nothing on 32-Bit Client VM

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      linux

      Description

      JFrame.setTitle() won't change the Windows title. Nothing is displayed at all.
      One can use this tiny little proggy to expose this issue:

      import javax.swing.JFrame;
      import javax.swing.JLabel;

      public class HelloWorldSwing {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
          JFrame frame = new JFrame("HelloWorldSwing");
          final JLabel label = new JLabel("Hello World");
          frame.getContentPane().add(label);
          frame.setTitle("Test title");
          frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
          frame.pack();
          frame.setVisible(true);
        }
      }

      The problem shows up only with this realease (Client):

      java version "1.5.0_14"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_14-b03)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_14-b03, mixed mode, sharing)

      but *not* with the corresponding 64-Bit VM (Server):

      java version "1.5.0_14"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_14-b03)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_14-b03, mixed mode)

      It also works fine with 1.6, haven't checked with dolphin yet.

      OS is:
      Ubuntu 6.10 - the Edgy Eft - released in October 2006.
      Linux baldur 2.6.17-10-generic #2 SMP Fri Oct 13 15:34:39 UTC 2006 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      One additionl hint might be the fact that more sophisticated Swing programs like NetBeans show this at statup:

      /usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:70: Engine "ubuntulooks" is unsupported, ignoring
      /usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:240: Priority specification is unsupported, ignoring
