It occurs in the BacicTableUI class, which is part of the JDK. Obtain the source code for the JDK which exactly matches the version of JRE you're using, and have a look at the offending line in the JDK source code. That should give you some pointers.

If you still cannot resolve it then, post here the relevant parts of the source code and the exact version of the JDK, someone might be able to help.
