Does anyone know why the headers on a JTable disappear unless you put the table in a JScrollPane? Is this a bug or a "feature"?

I guess you can call it a feature. Read this excerpt from the JTable tutorial:
If you're using a table without a scroll pane, then you must get the table header component and place it yourself. For example:
container.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
container.add(table.getTableHeader(), BorderLayout.NORTH);
container.add(table, BorderLayout.CENTER);
