BorderLayout with MenuBar override Component

In the following code using BorderLayout if I use MenuBar, it seems to override part of my TextField component.
If I remove the MenuBar, the component appears OK.
After I resize the window, both Menu and Text appears ok.
Why? How can I make it appear correctly at the first time.
I've already tested with JDK 1.1.3 (make sure it's not a fixed bug)

Thanks

// here goes the code
import java.awt.*;

public class GUIWindow extends Frame {
  public GUIWindow() {
    Panel bottomPanel = new Panel();
    BorderLayout bl = new BorderLayout();
    setLayout(bl);

    MenuBar mb = new MenuBar();
    Menu m1 = new Menu("Item 1");
    MenuItem m11 = new MenuItem("Item 1.1");
    setMenuBar(mb);
    mb.add(m1);
    m1.add(m11);

    bottomPanel.add(new Label("Label"));
    bottomPanel.add(new TextField("TextField"));
    add("South", bottomPanel);
  }

    public boolean handleEvent(Event event) {
       if (event.id == Event.WINDOW_DESTROY) {
          System.exit(0);
       }
       return super.handleEvent(event);
    }

    public static void main(String args[]) {
        GUIWindow window = new GUIWindow();

        window.setTitle("Testing");
        window.pack();
        window.show();
    }
}
