Same here, on my amd64 system with Java6 and MToolkit my java app
crashes. Without MToolkit the behaviour of the app (reaction to menu
button clicks) is not quite as I would expect so Java6 seems to have
even more problems with dwm. I seem to remember from what I read on
Sun's web pages that MToolkit will be removed from Java in the future
(maybe it's already gone) so this problem will remain.
