Bug with Netbeans menus in Centos 7

I recently upgraded my system from Centos 6.5 to Centos 7. In the process of reloading everything I also
updated Netbeans from 8.0 to 8.0.2. Previously I never had any problems with Netbeans, but ever since the
update, mouse-menu interaction has been flawed. When I click on the menu title, the menu opens correctly,
but once I tried to move my mouse to actually select an option in that menu, the active menu changes to about 2
menus to the left, and the selected option becomes whatever one or two options above where the mouse is in
the (incorrectly) active menu. If I right click a project I get the same results though it is clearer: The
menu selection seems to be offset incorrectly, such that it is registering the mouse's position as being
higher and further left than it actually is. This o
nly effects menus (though there is some odd text bugs where the labels are a few pixels lower than they should
be cutting of the tail of any letter that has one, such as 'j' or 'y'), everyt!
hing else functions correctly otherwise.
I've attached an image of the glitch i question. For context, I was trying to select something in the 'Tools'
menu. You will notice in the picture that the 'Profile' menu is open and 'Attach Profiler' is selected.
This wasn't selected when the mouse was parallel with the selection but rather only selected after going
further down (about where it is in the picture). Likewise, in the right click menu of a maven project, I have
to be parallel with the 'Debug' option in order to select the 'Run' option.
Is this a known bug, has anyone else seen this?
