This is actually a known Java bug, which relied on a certain event
order (AFAIR). I think for SUSE we have a workaround in compiz.

Maybe you want to check Novell bugzilla #168636. Unfortunately, it is
closed duplicated into a non-world-readable bug. Basically, it seems to
be fixed in cvs_060522 or cvs_060601.
