Java + Swing = Huge Buttons/Menus


I am getitng a wierd problem anytime I run a Java Application that makes use of Swing (Standard Java GUI Toolkit).

http://catclub.dnip.net/java.jpg

Any Java programs that use Swing have menus and buttons that are bigger than they should be. I have three different programs open in that screenshot and as you can see by the menus open they are too big.

They aren't like this in Windows and I've seen screenshots of JEdit in other Linux Setups where the menus and buttons are of a normal size.

I am using Gentoo Linux 2004.1 64-Bit
Blackdown JRE 1.4.2.01
Blackdown JDK 1.4.2.01

Have tried changing the fonts and font sizes and it doesn't help.

Any help would be appreciated
