With new Jogl release there's a 2nd window opened, called "dummy window".
Unfortunately under Windows OS this dummy window on the taskbar confuses the
user(s), and more: as I report in the thread below, when in dummy window is
being maximized per right-click on the taskbar icon - and you never know what
your users do - there's no mouse pointer anymore on my Ati card PC: even hitting
Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't bring the desktop back: you're lost in ghost space. Until
you hit the key to exit your app, in case there is such one.
Another (Xith) user made a screenshot of this with his Nvidia card:

The dummy window is now being disposed of once the necessary OpenGL function
pointers have been obtained from the OpenGL context that is created for it.
Please reopen the bug or file a new one if problems persist with this new dummy
window mechanism. This bug is fixed in 1.1b02.
