webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~dmarkov/8032872/jdk9/webrev.00/

Problem description: It is impossible to make a selection in JComboBox 
added to JWindow via the mouse. The problem is caused by incorrect mouse 
events handling in LWWindowPeer class. When LWWindowPeer receives a

Fix: Introduce new private method 
LWWindowPeer.isOneOfOwnersOf(LWWindowPeer peer). The method will be 
invoked on grabbingWindow object to test whether it is owner of current 
mouse event target or not. The usage of getOwnerFrameDialog() should be 
replaced by isOneOfOwnersOf() in LWWindowPeer.notifyMouseEvent() and
