Hello, AWT Team. 

Please review the fix for the issue:
The fix is available at:

The problem:
The Toolkit thread does not have an AppContext so we can't use EventQueue.invokeLater on it.

The solution:
Remove invokeLater. This is safe, because the updateProperties is thread safe. The result of this call is a post of a PropertyChangeEvent for each AppContext in the application.

The test:
Hard to create, because we can't synthesize the WM_SETTINGCHANGE event.

Thank you.
With best regards. Petr.
