Red X appears initially in new image windows

When a new image window pops up (e.g., from File > Open Samples > Blobs), there is initially a red X where the image should be, before it finally gets painted a second or two later. This is a cosmetic problem, but somewhat ugly, and may cause window packing bugs with certain L&Fs and/or on certain platforms.

I'm pretty sure this will not cause packing problems. I have debugged into JHotDraw and uts simply drawing a rect and two lines within the current preferred size.

This problem does not occur anymore. The behavior is still not perfect (try Nile Bend and watch as the window appears huge, then resizes smaller...) but there is no more red X.
