[xmonad] Problem with popup menus in java application

I switched to xmonad, but since then I can't access the menus in
JDownloader. The symptoms: I click on the File menu (or right click on a
package to bring up the context menu), the menu appears, but as soon as
I release the mouse button, the menu disappears, so I can't select
anything. If I hold down the mouse button, and use the arrow keys +
Enter, it works, but that's rather cumbersome.

I already tried _JAVA_AWT_WM_NONREPARENTING=1 with OpenJDK and
startupHook = setWMName "LG3D" with the Sun JRE.

Any tips to solve this?
