Problem with multiwindow and drop-down menus

I'm having a problem with 1.7 when starting the server with 
-multiwindow. I am trying to run Sun's jconsole application (part of the 
JDK 6) remotely, but none of the menus work correctly.

When I run a separate window manager (wmaker), they work correctly. I 
can click on a menu and it will stay open. I can move my mouse to select 
a menu entry and then click again to "make it so".

With -multiwindow, clicking on the menu just causes it to flash open. If 
I hold the mouse down, the menu will stay open, but I can't select any 
options. The only way I can interact with jconsole is with keyboard 

Any ideas? Is this some local configuration problem or a known issue 
with -multiwindow?
