BUG : JTextArea cursor leaves trails while scrolling

Editing large text files (1000+ lines) in a JTextArea when you scroll up/down with the keyboard sometimes the cursor leaves a trail (intermittently).

I've attached a sample screen shot to show the problem. It only seems to happen in Windows. In the image I'm holding in the down arrow key.

This bug seemed to begin around Java 6 Update 14. I've posted a bug report before but never got any attention.

Any ideas?
