This way I managed to reproduce the problem after some rounds of clicking,
using Snow Leopard both with the native "Mac OS X" and "Nimbus" look &
feel. Mountain Lion appears to work, at least I did not see anything bad
after trying the same 4-5 times longer than on Snow Leopard.
So it might be just bad luck of Java 7 on Snow Leopard. Oracle says it
does nothing against it nor for it. So if Java 7 happens to work on what
Apple considers legacy already, it is mere luck.
