JTextPane printing issue

God I hate Java printing!!

I'm trying to print out a JTextPane that has an embedded JComponent using the new 1.6 JPrintComponent.print() method. Works great for text with no embedded components, but doesn't work so great for text WITH embedded components.

If you run the example program below, you'll see a text component with a circle drawn into an embedded component at the bottom of the document. When I hit the Print button at the bottom, the embedded component with the circle goes away. (This takes a few moments while the print system initializes.)

Does anyone have a guess as to how to keep the component from going away when I try to print the document?
