Hi,
I am new to this site (thank's to the great Java Books from Cathy & co ;-) ) and while I was working on my first Swing Application I noticed a really odd beahaviour. All (my own and third party) Swing programs (fe not eclipse) were terrible slow on my machine. If I started watching a video on the Windows System in the background, the Swing programs would run at normal speed.
After discovering that it is possible not a programming mistake by me, I started to investigate, profile, debug and poke around. (I am relatively new to java and have nearly no clue about windows and hardware issues)
A verry helpful person on ##java (freenode, flippo) told me to try some switches in the jvm (Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_06-b05, mixed mode, sharing) and it happened that this would solve the problems:
-Dswing.volatileImageBufferEnabled=false
Of course I won't issue a bug, I don't know if there is not already an open bug for this and if it is my system that behaves strange.
But I want this fixed in the next sun-jdk/jre version, so what is the best way to go? (Any hint how to track the root of this issue down, are also appreciated!)

Thanks in advance,
Thomas
