This seems to be a safe fix to me. As mentioned in `Pixels.java`, the class is not thread safe but most of the other
methods have the check `Application.checkEventThread()`, so those methods seem safe. But the the method `getPixels()`
does not have this check, as it is at least accessed by two threads. The new method `getBuffer()` is a true get method
and more correct for comparing the buffers.
