Can we change the condition and process the sync event in this loop?

But it should be changed, because we get native events from the system 
during dnd and in each such callback we should update this counter. If 
callbacks were not called=>counter was not updated then sync assume that 
currently we do not process events. If callbacks were called then sync 
assume that we have events in the native queue and should try to sync 
again on the next iteration.

Default timeout is 120 seconds for everything, the test try to sync the 
queue 200 of times after each move, so yes it can fail with timeout even 
if spend in nativesync 200 ms, the possible solutions were in my 
previous email.

This exception will be disabled by default lately in jdk9 timeframe, 
right now it helps to find some related issues.
