This is SUN's new "Security Measure". When Java goes full screen, they
put that stupid gray status bar underneth. As a Java programmer,
I know of no way to keep that from happening. There are no doc's
at SUN that even tells you that will happen when you go fullscreen.

HOWEVER: EasyPano Java viewer seems to be able to get around that
problem. It can go fullscreen without showing that stupid status
bar.

Try their Java viewer. The full screen switch is on a right button
menu.

I'm cross posting this message to one of SUN's development forums.

I suggest that any of you who are concerned about Java's utility as
a panorama viewer platform to join that forum and complain to that forum.
