JComboBox drop-down list extends past JDialog boundary

Hello,
When my JComboBox contains enough items to extend the drop-down list past JDialog boundary I cannot make a selection in the ComboBox and the ItemStateChanged event is not fired.
I realize that I can call JComboBox.setMaximumRowCount(#) to get around this however this is not desireable. Any ideas???
