java.awt event processing performance degradation on JRE7 - linux

Thanks for reporting the problem. I am curious if you have collected
any profiling data that shows
sun.util.logging.PlatformLogger.redirectPlatformLoggers() is the cause
of the performance degradation. This redirection is done as part of the
logging initialization before JFrame is initialized. Since the
performance degradation you observed is after the JFrame has been
instantiated, it could be something else. If it's logging-related, it
would be sun.util.logging.PlatformLogger.
