Since you proposed this version of the fix, do you want to push it ?

>> 4. To prevent the usage of dangling pointer to the XXXGraphicsConfigInfo, the java part of XXXSDOps has a strong reference to the java part of XXXGraphicsConfigInfo
>> The assumption at point 4 is not correct, it is possible that the native part of the XXXGraphicsConfigInfo could be disposed before XXXSDOps, and we will get a crash when we will try to dispose the XXXSDOps.
>> Long time ago when it was implemented it works fine, because we never dispose the graphics configs, we read them on-start and use till the end of the application, even now we use this approach on Linux(JDK-8076313).
>> So this bug existed on Linux, Windows and migrated to the macOS platform, but only on macOS and windows we can get a crash.
>> I have rechecked the usage of the pointer from XXXSDOps to XXXGraphicsConfigInfo which caused a crash and think that we can get rid it, but it will required to change bunch of code on all platforms, so as a minimal fix I suggest this one:
