Did you mean 1 GB of RAM? –  Sly Oct 2 '12 at 5:23
    
I mean dwm consumes 1mb of ram –  Francesco Oct 3 '12 at 5:42
    
Ah. Got'cha. I thought you meant altogether for your system. –  Sly Oct 3 '12 at 11:05

Perhaps your issue is the same as this xmonad issue?

http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Xmonad/Frequently_asked_questions#Problems_with_Java_applications.2C_Applet_java_console

The Java gui toolkit has a hardcoded list of so-called "non-reparenting" window managers. xmonad is not on this list (nor are many of the newer window managers). Attempts to run Java applications may result in `grey blobs' where windows should be, as the Java gui code gets confused.

A solution is to export _JAVA_AWT_WM_NONREPARENTING=1.

Edit: According to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dwm#Fixing_misbehaving_Java_applications, you can also use "wmname LG3D" to hack the window manager's name.
