      Description

      When a web page containing a JOGL applet is scrolled on some machines and
      operating systems, it leaves trails behind. This makes it difficult if not
      impossible to build web based applications with JOGL.

      This problem has been seen on multiple operating systems and web browsers, but
      the URL above indicates that the problem may be limited to the Firefox and
      Safari browsers. The problem is reproducible on Firefox 2 and 3 on Windows with
      certain graphics hardware and on Safari on Mac OS X again with certain graphics
      hardware. Notably the problem does not occur in Internet Explorer.

      When this problem was first reported it appeared that it might be a bug in
      NVidia's drivers, but a bug filed with them was closed with the indication that
      the trails occurred with ATI hardware as well.

      Investigation is needed to see whether the setting of the window style performed
      by the Java Plug-In affects the behavior in any way. The window styles set by
      the IE and Firefox plug-ins are currently different.

      A bug should probably be filed with Apple.
