I checked the issue on my own, and noticed that hg tip changes
have no effect. Quite curios, even disabling manage() or
configurerequest() had no effect, which is really odd.

That means, if dwm is running, those Java apps don't work, even
if dwm don't(!) manages them. Hence it can't be related to how
dwm arranges windows, reacts to configurerequests or resizes
windows. The next suspicion I have are EWMH hints...
