ObjectChoiceField's super.paint crashing.

I am using following code to change the font color of a ObjectChoiceField. 


ObjectChoiceField ncf = new  ObjectChoiceField("My Choice",items,initialIndex)
            public void paint(Graphics g)

                 int foreColor = Color.WHITE;




I compiled this application on JDE 4.5, And it runs fine on all 4.5 simulators. But it throws java.lang.IllegalArgumentException on Blackberry 9930 generic simulator at super.paint(g).
But similar code works in other screen. If I put super.paint(g) in a try catch block, then it will not crash but it wont paint ObjectChoiceField properly.  I am also attaching the call stack.

Could any one please help me to fix this issue?
