jbuilder 2007 does NOT parse valid GUI forms created by old jbuilder

jbuilder 2007 does NOT parse valid GUI forms created by old jbuilder

jbuilder 2007 does NOT parse valid GUI forms created by old jbuilder

new Jbuilder 2007 has a regression in GUI designer:
it does not parse old forms (created in previous jbuilder versions) properly in most cases.
note: these forms are shown correctly in previous jbuilder versions (2005, 2006).

Steps to Reproduce:
Start any previous JBuilder version, like 2006.
create a swing application,
create a frame/panel, open it in "Design" mode.
add something more or less complicated to the form.
note: the frame/panel is parsed and shown properly.

start JBuilder 2007,
import the application.
open the created frame/panel in the "visual editor".

expected: the frame/panel is displayed properly like in the previous jbuilder versions

the form is not shown,
sometimes components are displayed independently of each other (not one inside other),
sometimes nothing is shown in the editor,
or even NullPointerException is displayed.

is this a known problem?
