having a hard time understanding which causes a ghost-like dialog in MAC OS.. is it the code itself, jvm used or something else. lets say i have 2 dialogs , A and B. dialog A was disposed but after closing dialog B(later activated after closing dialog A), a blank non-responding dialog A remains on the screen. the application works fine in other OS(linux, win32, solaris, aix).. prob is only encountered in MAC. pls lend some nformation.. thanx!

I'm pretty sure that this is a bug with the Swing implementation/JVM on Mac OS X. I get the same problem when running pure Swing apps like IntelliJ or SmartCVS. The only thing to do is wait until the next version comes down via the software update feature, unfortunately.
By the way, could you take a quick look at the naming policy and change your screen name?
