    problem with drawString

    i am creating a java application in eclipse. the java framework i'm using is 1.4.2 and the version of eclipse is 3.1.2.

    the issue i'm having is with drawString. when i attempt to call drawString on a Graphics or Graphics2D object i get the error...

    -------------------------------------------------
    *** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x08089250 ***
    -------------------------------------------------

    here is a sample bit of code that produces the error:

    -------------------------------------------------
    BufferedImage img = new BufferedImage( 100, 100, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB );
    Graphics g = img.getGraphics();
    g.drawString( "test", 0, 0 );
    -------------------------------------------------

    i, however, do not get any error when i call drawString on the Graphics object in the overriden "paint" method of a JFrame object. for example, the following code works fine:

    -------------------------------------------------
    public void paint( Graphics g )
    {
    g.drawString( "test", 20, 40 );
    }
    -------------------------------------------------

    if someone could please help me out, i'd greatly appreciate it! i'm new to java and this problem has kept me stumped for many hours.

    thanks,
    mike

    This doesn't seem like a Java problem, but rather a problem with the JVM. What version of the JVM are you using?
