Texts are being displayed without spaces between words in OpenJDK 11

Solution In Progress - Updated -


I'm running a java application display menu with texts on redhat 7.7 workstation.
Everything work good with java-11-openjdk version:

$ /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk- -version
openjdk version "11.0.3" 2019-04-16 LTS
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.3+7-LTS)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.3+7-LTS, mixed mode, sharing)

When update to version:

$ /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk- -version
openjdk version "11.0.5" 2019-10-15 LTS
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.5+10-LTS)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.5+10-LTS, mixed mode, sharing)

The texts loosing all the spaces. Please see the attached output documents
