Problems using RGBImageFilter

Has anyone used RGBImageFilter?  I subclassed it and mapped colors from one image to another.  The resulting image looks OK within browsers on an NT machine, but the image is "blank" (no image at all and no error messages) on a Mac.  I've tried setting the alpha channel by hand and using colors from Netscapes colormap - to no avail.  I also tried to run the applet from AppletViewer (JDK 1.0.2) with same result.  It seems specific to the Mac.  The filter also works fine on an SGI (NS 4.0.2).
Has anyone else run across this?  Could it be a problem with a different color model used on the Mac?  Does anyone know of an applet that uses the RGBImageFilter?

It's specific MAC's problem!
Something wrong with MAC's Netscape classes packages.

I know it for sure. I have a lot of applets at my
pages which use RGBImage filter
And with my good friend who uses Mac we found this problem.

He also had this problem with applets
supplyed by "Demicron" (www.demicron.com)

He checked this applets with TWO different models
of MAC. All the same...

You can try my "luminous" applet
from my page:

This one do not use RGBImage filter, it work with pixels
in RGBColorModel and it also has problems at MAC.

There are some other my classes "imagewave" and "lines" uses
RGBImageFilter wich can filter indexed color model.
If you want to check more applets :)

Thanks for the answer kollegov.  It's good to know that I'm not going crazy.
After more work, I discovered some strange results.  If I do a fillRect() to an off-screen image and then try to RGBImageFilter the off-screen image, then NS3 or 4 on the MAC NEVER calls the filterRGB() method of RGBImageFilter!!!  In SUN's appletviewer on the MAC, the filterRGB() method gets called, but claims that all the pixels = 0 (black, with full transparency)!!!  However, if I read in an image from a URL (disk, website, etc), then it the RGBImageFilter works fine!!
I also tried to use PixelGrabber to convert the off-screen image into an integer array, then change the pixel values, and use MemoryImageSource to paste it back into another image - again, didn't work in either NS3/4 or appletviwer on the MAC.  It's possible that the RGBImageFilter uses PixelGrabber (which returned zeros again), so this may be the same problem manifested differently.  Also, if I loaded an image from a URL everything worked fine again.
Here's to platform independence!!!
