Filechooser in Japanese hosts

I am facing a problem when running my swing app (webstarted) in japanese hosts. The combo box on top of the file chooser (to select the folder) does not show correct characters for drive names. For example, Drive name for C: shows all small squares. I don't see the problem on other places is the app where japanese characters are displayed correctly. Is there anything to do specifically while using JFileChooser if we are running the app in Japanese hosts?
Thanks
