Sometimes I see ghost windows or phantom windows appear while running JExpress. The dialog box usually doesn't have any components, but I can't make it go away.

Apple's JVM has a known bug that doesn't properly dispose of windows. It appears this bug was introduced in Apple's JVM 1.4.1. There are mixed reports by Apple whether 1.4.2 resolves the issue or not.

The program continues to operate properly if you simply move the ghost window out of the way. Stay tune to Apple's update notice about when they fully resolve this.
