I think the problem here is that you used the official version along
with Debian's one. They both use the same configuration in ~/.netbeans,
and we cannot guarantee that this always works perfectly. So in short I
recommend to use only one of them, naturally the Debian one :), to avoid
any conflicts. You should also be on the safe side if you remember to
rename your config directory whenever you change IDEs. Then both should
be able to co-exist.

I'll keep this bug report open for a while in case someone has a similar

There is also a Ubuntu bug report which seems to be related.:
