Hi All,

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8191639

It is seen that when JList.locationToIndex() or getCellBounds() is 
overridden to return -1 or null respectively,
it causes NPE when PageUp/PageDown is pressed in JList.

 From the spec 
of getCellBounds(), it is seen that it can return null under some 
circumstances. But, JList jdk code assumes it is always non-null.

Proposed fix is to check for null return value of getCellBounds() and 
bail out.
