Yes, I should comment, sorry. The fact is some methods in this component
are overriden because it's the table that does redraw all the components
and if each component redraw it self, it'll take too much time.

I thing I still have some mails that explain exactly what happens (some
devs on this list helped me).

You know Mark, it took me a long time to understand and to implement
(event empty methods because I was not sure I have to leave it empty)
and I really want a working swing implementation, not just a library to
compile (but not to run). Believe me, when I do send a patch, I try that
it's really useful ;)... even if I make mistakes ;)

I already do follow your coding standards, next time, I'll comment my
code ;)
