JToggleButton text truncated with Windows L&F

    Details

      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The text of a JToggleButton using certain characters such as lowercase "x" will be truncated when displayed using the Windows look and feel. This worked in JDK 8, 9, 10.0.1 and stopped working in JDK 10.0.2. It remains broken in JDK 11 and later (including JDK 13 EA).

      REGRESSION : Last worked in version 10.0.1

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Compile and run the provide `WindowsToggleButtonTextTruncation` class.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      A toggle button and a regular button both displaying the label "x"
      ACTUAL -
      A toggle button displaying an elipsis ("...") and a regular button displaying "x"
