Has anyone seen the following problem? I am attempting
to run an applet with a bundled swing 1.1.1 and Internet Explorer 4.0
I am using swingall.jar and want to use the Metal look and Feel.[javax/swing/plaf/metal/DefaultMetalTheme.<init>]:

Re: problem with DefaultMetalTheme

I've never seen this, nor have I tried to bundle swingall.jar
with an applet. I'm guessing that if you sign your app in a jar that
will solve the problem.

Does the same thing happen in Netscape?

I saw you posted this message to the advanced swing mailing
list as well. Didn't see any response yet though.. Have you
gotten any?
