Ever since I installed the latest Mac OS X Java update for Leopard last night (2009/12/4), scrolling in any of the scrollable panels in IntelliJ 8.1.4 is VERY slow. The symptoms are pretty much identical to what I sometimes get when I forget to use ScrollBar.setUnitIncrement to set a 'reasonable' scrolling increment on the scroll bars in my ScrollPane's. Assuming that the problem is a change in the default scrolling speed of scroll bars in this latest Java update, is there some way that I can override the new default by setting a property or something similar somewhere?
Note that by "slow", I mean that the scrollable panel does not move very far for each 'click' of the mouse wheel. This is very different from a performance problem related to scrolling that is discussed in a different thread in this forum.
Just to avoid any potential confusion, I am running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8 (i.e. *NOT* Snow Leopard).
