No text when using an MB Pro?

I have been seeing this behavior for a long time, when using Netbeans. 
Everything that would draw a string would draw a blank, and sometimes it would take some time to encounter a trigger that would make it all go blank. Once it goes blank it never recovers.
I made an attempt to figure it out, but was unsuccessful. 

This was on a MacPro1,1 with a dual monitor setup.
