That is interesting. Thanks for looking into it.

But it does beg the thought... in earlier versions of Gnome/Ubuntu 
(10.10 for me until Sunday morning) this wasn't an issue. I had a load 
of buttons along the bottom panel to show me what apps I had running 
(minimised or not). And Talend/Eclipse etc. did work. Now they don't.

I doubt Java has changed that much so I would consider this a regression.
