OK, this is going to sound strange.
I'm using eclipse to do some basic swing programming. My main problem is that I can compile and run my program with no errors or warnings every time. Sometimes, visual components such as JComboBox or JTextField will show up on the screen exactly as I want them to, and other times they won't. Even if I don't change any code, I get flaky performance.
It doesn't seem to matter whether I compile and run from Eclipse or the command line. FWIW, any output I send to the console is rock solid.
Help, this is driving me crazy!
