One thing you could try would be to remove the DisplayPanelJ2Ds from
the tabs that are hidden, and only add back the one that is currently
visible, so that the others don't act on calls to repaint().  Or you
could try setting the clipping rectangle of the non-visible displays
to size (0, 0).  I admit that I don't know much about Java2D though,
so I'm not sure if the latter option would work.
