JProgressBar Indeterminate "frozen" in JDK7 on Mac OS X 10.7.3

After updating to 7u4 a week or so ago, I've seen some issues with a handful of Swing components, JComboBox and JProgressBar.

Combo boxes will sometimes not display their popup window, although this behavior is not consistent from run to run of the same code. The same code works as expected in JDK6 (minus the new generics for combo boxes for Java 7).

For the JProgressBar, there is no animation displayed when setting indeterminate to true. This is 100% consistent, and the animation displays as expected in JDK6.

I read the changes in the latest beta versions of 7u6 and noticed there were fixes to some popup menus, and I haven't seen the combo box issue using the latest 7u6(b09). Note, that I don't know whether this is actually fixed as the problem does not show up consistently.

The progress bar indeterminate issue remains in 7u6(b09) on Mac OS X 10.7.3.

Perhaps I've missed something and that progress bar indeterminate mode is not supposed to animate in Java 7?

Thanks in advance, and let me know if I can provide more information.
