      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      JDK 1.7.0 u60 EA

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      6.1.7601

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      NVidia onboard video

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When starting Swing applications using the Windows native L&F, an NPE is thrown. When starting the same applications using Nimbus or a third party L&F, little 8x8 squares are randomly cut out of font glyphs as they are rendered.

      Disabling DirectX rendering via command-line switches allows non-native L&Fs to run without trouble, but the Windows L&F still fails to start.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 7u51

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Download and launch http://www.dbvis.com/

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The application launches.
      ACTUAL -
      The splash screen remains displayed indefinitely.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Use another operating system.
