Problem with NSImage in JNI

  • Hello everybody!

    I have a problem with some code for a Java native interface that gets
    the icon for a specific file type from NSWorkspace and returns it to
    the calling Java method (see code below). Everything works fine on
    10.4, but on Leopard I get the following error message when the
    function is called and the Java app crashes:

    "HIToolbox: ignoring exception 'Error (1002) creating CGSWindow' that
    raised inside Carbon event dispatch
    java(1573,0xa0876074) malloc: *** error for object 0x21000: pointer
    being freed was not allocated"

    I have found the statement that causes the crash, but don't really
    know what goes wrong (as I said, it works on Tiger). The Java app uses
    SWT for the GUI (which in turn uses Carbon afaik).

    Any idea is appreciated :)
