Hi Artem,

Thanks for the review.

Reading through macosx-port-dev@ mailing list I observe a lot of users 
who (try to) use Oracle JDK for Mac on Snow Leopard systems, and I see 
nothing wrong with that as long as it is runnable on those systems. At 
least at this exact moment we don't have a strong reason to drop support 
for (this is a wrong word here, rather "ability to run on") Mac OS X 
10.6. When there's some code that ultimately won't run on Snow Leopard 
and we drop the support completely, then we may remove this grow box 
stuff as well. But currently it doesn't hurt anyone.

So for now I would like to leave GROW_BOX_SIZE and friends as they are. 
Is this OK?

best regards,
