> The Java 7 release seems to have broken the LWJGL project on Linux, it no longer works and complains that "libjawt.so" is not loaded. The project has been calling the following method: java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit(); to ensure that this native file is loaded, this has worked fine for the last 6 or so years. There seems to have been some internal change which causes this to break. Any idea's on what it could be and how to fix this?

I've cc'ed the AWT dev folk as they should know what has changed in 7.
