I don't think so, its a java and/or (beryl) x-server related "feature".

You can set a environment variable if you use beryl:
# fix beryl bug with java
export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit

or as you did already, set the showassistant parameter to false. So this is a 
user setup and not package related.....
You can also call tvbrowser.sh in a console and see if there are some 

A second open question, which java version do you use ?
Is it a original SuSE package or the package from the Sun Homepage ?

have fun
