Hi Artem,

Thanks for the review. Please find my comments below.

A custom toolkit may be specified via the -Dawt.toolkit= argument. The 
AWT_TOOLKIT env var must override this setting. Therefore, the var must 
be checked. Please note that the test in question fails on X11 exactly 
for this reason, it invokes:

> AWT_TOOLKIT=XToolkit ${TESTJAVA}/bin/java -Djava.awt.headless=true \
>                                               -Dawt.toolkit=sun.awt.motif.MToolkit \
>                                               TestWrapped sun.awt.X11.XToolkit

and expects the AWT_TOOLKIT to have precedence over the -Dawt.toolkit 
setting. So we must check the environment variable on any *NIX platform.

The comment at line 112 has been added for exactly this reason. It's 
already there.

It may be implemented this way. However, its specification [1] doesn't 
mention that NULL is a valid argument. Therefore, I prefer to check for 
NULL before calling the function.
