It's been reported that applet windows that should be full-screen are being displayed *behind* desktop elements.  See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=577953 for one such report.  I agree with Deepak that this is a problem not limited to applets, but within openjdk.  Afaict this is since http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/icedtea6/rev/83619682858e when patches/icedtea-override-redirect-metacity.patch was removed.  Changeset indicates the patch has been upstreamed in b17.  Closer inspection reveals that only the first hunk is upstream, the second part of the patch which actually addresses the metacity wm is not.  I think this part of the patch needs to be restored.  Building locally with that line back in XWindowPeer.java I see the correct behavior ie desktop elements hidden by java window.  Diff attached.  Does anyone see anything wrong with putting this back in?
