Last I'd heard, recent Java 7 was still broken in some way that ICCCMFocus
can't fix. But ICCCMFocus only addresses focus issues, not gray windows;
that part is generally dealt with by forcing the window manager name to one
that is recognized as non-reparenting, to turn off a bit of questionable
design in the JVM. (I had been under the impression this wasn't necessary
in Java 7, but I don't know for certain.)
That said, try using EwmhDesktops (which adds in the known gray-window
fixes automatically) or adding (setWMName "LG3D") to the StartupHook (or
myStartupHook in your config).
