Bug#477552: gnome-panel: Panel disapears running netbeans (from netbeans.org) with metacity composite enabled

Package: gnome-panel
Version: 2.20.3-3
Severity: normal

I've installed Netbeans IDE from netbeans.org (locally as user in home
directory) and after I've started the application the gnome-panel
disappears, but the whole functionality of the gnome-panel is still
So if I click on the upper left corner the menu opens, which i can see.

This behavior is only present, if I have the metacity compositing

With the debian netbeans packages this does not happen and everything
works fine.

I'm using the proprietary Nvidia display driver, maybe this info helps.
