   Hi Clemens,

   do you see the same issue with Java 6 or is it
   Java 7 specific?

   It happens here during this call:
     srcDrawable = srcXsdo->GetPixmapWithBg(env, srcXsdo, pixel);
   Which can be found in X11SurfaceData.c (X11SD_GetPixmapWithBg).
   Here 'pixel' is the pixel value of the bg color.

   There were some changes in this area recently in jdk7.
   My guess would be that we don't initialize the bitmask.
   In the case of a Blit we call (see X11PMBlitLoops.Blit)
             updateBitmask(src, dst,
                           src.getColorModel() instanceof IndexColorModel);
   but I don't see us doing it for the BlitBg.

   So if you do only BlitBg blits from the image the
   bitmask will never get initialized.
   Try adding the updateBitmask call to BlitBg and see if it helps..
