 Description   

missing border, grip: seems to be happening since 1.6.3

reported in swinglabs forum for JGoodies plasticXP:

https://www.java.net/forum/topic/javadesktop/swinglabs/jxstatusbar-swingx-165-1-version

can see the grip/border in 1.6 and 1.6.2, not in later versions. Not sure where exactly this problem is rooted, but the overall LAF dependent look seems weird (even for core LAFs).

Code snippets to reproduce/play with is JXStatusBarVisualCheck, installing/setting plastic

PlasticLookAndFeel.setCurrentTheme(new ExperienceBlue());
UIManager.installLookAndFeel("Plastic", PlasticXPLookAndFeel.class.getName());
//UIManager.setLookAndFeel(new PlasticXPLookAndFeel());

// some observations:

    /**
     * Issue ??-swingx: grip/border of statusbar missing
     * https://www.java.net/forum/topic/javadesktop/swinglabs/jxstatusbar-swingx-165-1-version
     * 
     * Metal is without always (since 1.6), 
     * plasticXP can have it for < 1.6.3, problems with toggling LAF though
     * 
     * UIManager.setLAF(plasticXP): 
     * - 1.6 has grip
     * - 1.6.2 has grip
     * - 1.6.3 no grip
