GlAnimCanvas & JMenu

Hi all,

My problem is as follows:
I have a Java pogram which contains a JFrame with a JMenuBar, JMenus and JMenuItems
everything works fine, until I display a GLAnimCanvas (from opengl for java) in my JFrame
When I do that, my JMenuBar is still visible, but when I click on a JMenu
the JMenuItems seem to disappear under the GLAnimCanvas
What can I do to bring the JMenuItems back to the foreground?

JPopupMenu.setDefaultLightWeightPopupEnabled( false );
