After executing of the test from the fix on different platforms I found 
other problems in dnd.
  - On windows the nested event loop sometimes is not stopped if the 
window was disposed before than dnd events was dispatched.
  - On linux mouse_exit event is not fired, but everything is ok for 
  - On osx there is a problem with lwawt heavyweight components.
This is not a regressions, I'll file separate CR for them to jdk9.
