I too am having SymbolChooser problems. I launch SymbolChooser with the following code and an icon never shows up in the box.

        Properties p = new Properties();
        SymbolReferenceLibrary srl = new SymbolReferenceLibrary();
        SymbolChooser.showDialog(null,"Symbol Chooser",srl,null);
