Hello,

The class of keys in Java's UI/L&F manager changed between Java 1.5  
and 1.6. I addressed this problem about one year ago [1]. If you are  
getting this bug, it means that you are probably using IsaViz 2.1.  
You have two options :

- run IsaViz 2.1 with a JVM 1.5 or earlier
- run IsaViz 3.0-alpha1 with any JVM, including 1.6

IsaViz 3.0-alpha1 is available from the Download section at [2].  
Provided you only use the features available in v2.1 (i.e. don't play  
with the Fresnel features), v3.0-alpha1 should be as stable as 2.1,  
and actually compatible with a wider range of versions of GraphViz.
