This indeed looks like a bug in AWT. I'm BCC'ing swing-dev@, and CC'ing 
awt-dev@ instead (please subscribe to this mailing list before posting 
to it).

Here's a question: why do we consider this issue affects child windows 
only? If you call dispose() on a regular window several times in a row, 
you'll receive that many WINDOW_CLOSED events. Isn't it the real bug 
here actually?

Note that simply guarding a call to dispose()/disposeImpl() with a check 
is not the best option because it changes the behavior. If user code 
overrides certain methods, they may be stopped being called after your 
fix, and this may break that code.

Since the DisposeAction is executed synchronously anyway, perhaps it 
should set a flag based on which the doDispose() method would decide to 
send this event or not. What do you think? Also, have you run existing 
jtreg tests (in jdk/test/java/awt/) to verify that this fix doesn't 
introduce a regression?

PS. I can't find the bug filed by you in our bug database. I'll file a 
new one once we review your fix on this mailing list.

best regards,
