[kepler-dev] remote display of Kepler & drag&drop

is the remote machine a Mac, by any chance?

I saw this behavior about a month ago, remotely accessing a mac (using 
VNC over SSH), and was seeing Java errors that I have never seen before 
(or since), which had something to do with the display environment and 
the Apple JVM (I didn't copy the error for posterity, unfortunately). 
Google didn't shed any light on the issue, and then subsequently, the 
problem went away as mysteriously as it started.

In conclusion, I can't offer any helpful advice, but thought a little 
empathy might help :-)

I'd be interested to hear if it *is* OS X, and if you get any java 
errors showing up in the command window
