animation not animating...

I am trying to do a simple animation (like in HeadStart java p 384) but the panel is not redrawing. Here is the code bit:

This code is attached to a button listener, and if I change the limit of hte loop to 1 and click the button repeatedly, everything looks fine (animated, that is). But when I do 160 steps, only the last step gets drawn (after a long pause for all the sleeps).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
