iDRAC remote console issues on Linux Work Stations

I am accessing an M620's iDRAC on an Ubuntu 13.04 Work station. My problem is that when I load the console the window is very small and scales down the terminal screen. I can only drag the window frame up but the width stays about 80 pixels wide. I can click on "View" (Which only shows as "V" since the window is smashed together.) and select "Full Screen". This is my only work around that I have found out. 

The frame resizing works on Windows 7.

Note I have no problem accessing older iDRAC firmware with the same JDK version.

[GOOD] jdk1.7.0_25.x86_64 == iDRAC firmware 1.20.20 (Build 24)
[BAD] jdk1.7.0_25.x86_64 == iDRAC firmware 1.40.40 (Build 17)
[BAD] jdk1.7.0_25.x86_64 == iDRAC firmware 1.31.30 (Build 08)

So the issues seems to be with the new firmware and how it is using it's frame calls is different then how it did it in the older 1.20 version.

Added note:

Running on Ubuntu 13.04 64bit. 

Java is 1.7.0_u25. (32bit and 64 bit have same results)

RE: iDRAC remote console issues on Linux Work Stations

Me and most of my colleagues have the same problem.

I'm running 1.7.0_51, latest icedtea/various oracle java versions have the same problem.

Extremely annoying and renders iDrac almost useless.
