Thank you for the review of the fix. Yes, automatic jtreg regression
tests from the directories listed in my review request were launched.
Debugging of the issue showed that, as you said, AppContext equals null,
because the thread, on which
"java.awt.KeyboardFocusManager.getCurrentKeyboardFocusManager" method is
called, belongs to "system" thread group. The thread is "AWT-XAWT". And
since the root frame of NPE's call stack is "at
sun.awt.X11.XToolkit.run", it looks like there is nothing wrong in the
fact that the current thread is "AWT-XAWT". Yes, I agree that it is
necessary to fix a root cause of the issue, but in current NPE deploy
thread is not involved.
