although the patch is technically fine, I'm reluctant to any changes
like this. Ideally, in AWT code we shouldn't have any WM checks at all:
all of them are workarounds for various problems with our and their code.
I really hope we can drop most of the ancient WMs listed in the XWM
class (MOTIF, OPENLOOK, CDE, SAWFISH, etc) in JDK8. We know AWT/Swing
works fine on the modern WMs that conform to ICCCM and NET standards,
and I don't see any reasons to have (and add more!) workarounds for
non-conformant window managers.
