This is a problem of the Nimbus look-and-feel in jdk-8u60 (the current 
official release).  See also 

Lets wait and see for the next jdk-8 release.  If Oracle does not manage 
before our winter release, I might just switch the default to Metal. 
That old-fashioned look-and-feel works better with GUI scaling, which is 
essential on 4K displays.
