JavaFX (1.7.0_45) and Applet: problem with layout

A customer submitted me a problem concerning a Java WebStart applet made  
with JavaFX (JDK 1.7.0_45): the thing works, but at the beginning the  
rendering in the browser is such that a number of pixels are off the  
rendered area at the right and bottom borders. The problem happens with  
Internet Explorer and Firefox on Windows 8, even though by different pixel  
amounts. Just clicking with the mouse anywhere cause a re-computation of  
the layout so everything is ok.

I can't review all of the code, so I focused on the FXML and worked on it  
by removing unneeded stuff and making sure that PREFERRED_SIZE is used  
whenever it makes sense. But the problem is always there. At this point, I  
think that a reasonable workaround would be to force a layout  
re-computation just after the initialization... but how am I supposed to  
do that?

On a second instance, I'd like to understand what's wrong.
