[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] Request for review: JDK-7159455 : Nimbus scrollbar rendering glitch with xrender enabled on i945GM

Apologies as this is an old bug, but I just looked at the fix and it 
seems to me that it will allow shearing transforms to pass because the 
tests are incomplete.  The 0or180 flag only tests if the horizontal 
lines stay horizontal, but they could shift relative to each other in 
increasing Y which means a shear is present.  Similar, the 90or270 flags 
only verify that vertical lines stay vertical, but allow a shear in X.

Also, there are flags in AffineTransform that can tell you if the 
transform is quadrant rotated.  A much simpler test would be:

     ((tx.getType() & NON_RECTANGULAR_TX_FLAGS) == 0)
