Problem re-opening a JFrame

I have a JFrame that uses the GridBag Layout.
In one of the cells, I have a JPanel which used a GridLayout.
When I open the JFrame for the first time, everything look great.
I even have an "Add" button that adds data to the inner JPanel.
The entire JPanel is re-created everytime I hit the "Add" button.
This work fine, but when I close the JFrame and reopen it,
The inner JFrame does not render correctly. It seems to be out of place
and undersized.
Any Ideas?
When I close and reopen the JFrame, I recreate a new JFrame and JPanel.
Could the old one be affecting it?
Note, the JPanel is a private member of my JFrame class.
Thanks,
Terrence

Hi Terrence,
Your description is somewhat imprecise; maybe you could show us (possibly abridged!) code that displays the symptoms. Use the UBB CODE tag, please!

It might be difficult to put the code here, so I'll restate the question.
Do you know of any problems nesting a GridBagLayout?
For example, I have a JFrame whose layout is GridBag.
In on of the cells, I want to add a JPanel whose layout is also GridBag.
Thanks,
Terrence
