Thank you for the review.

I'll add the comment before the push.
Something like: "Can't check if running SWT in webstart, so splash screen in webstart SWT applications is not supported".

I see that we're not checking the isSWTInWebStart() case (see awt.m), but I don't immediately see any way to check this actually, because the JVM isn't started yet when the splashscreen is initializing. So I think we're good with the current solution. Although it would be good to document somewhere (in a comment in the code?) that when running an SWT app in WebStart, the AWT splashscreen is unsupported.
