By the way... would any of you happen to have a sledgehammer and the home address of the twit who thought it would be a good idea to make setMinimumSize(Dimension size) NOT implicitly call setPreferredSize(Dimension size) when the min is larger than the preferred, or the preferred is undefined? I'd like to have a little conversation with him about that programming decision, to make it so Swing components will prefer to size something at below its minimum functional size if you don't explicitly set the preferredSize as well.

I feel your pain... look at GregorianCalendar. Why does GregorianCalendar.getTime() return a Date while Date.getTime() returns a long?!

There are many other such discrepancies in the JDK; take a look at Roedy Green's Dictionary for more inanity. Inaneness? Non-sensicalificatory facts?
