<AWT Dev> Window Decorations do not work on x86_64

Hi, Francis, all,

the diffs in XPanelPeer are a part of the fix for 6567564 (Canvas's 
graphics config does not change when moved across monitors, Linux). The 
fix also includes some changes in XPanelPeer sub/super classes, and I 
think it's not a right thing to revert the changes from XPanelPeer only.

At the same time, I still can't reproduce the described problem with 
window decorations on my desktop. I have already written to Kyle 
privately about the required system configuration (32/64 bit, window 
manager, window manager version, etc.) but haven't received any reply. 
Until this information is available, we can't proceed with the bug.
