Is this the bug you reported via the bug dialog?

I think it must be.

This is a Java bug, not a bug in VASSAL. Sadly, Oracle doesn't care
that there's a race condition in their display code, so I don't have
any hope that it will ever be fixed:

The only workaround we can provide is a preference for turning off
DirectX D3D, since the problem tends to occur in that graphics pipeline
but not the others. (Check your Preferences for this setting.) There's
nothing else we can do about it, since the stack trace for this bug
doesn't go through any of our code.

Problems like these are reasons why we're not using Java for VASSAL 4.
