I ran across some funny characters appearing in the application title
under gnome shell and it turned out to be an old bug.
The ICCCM  states:
The WM_CLASS property (of type STRING without control characters)
contains two consecutive null-terminated strings.
Note that WM_CLASS strings are null-terminated and, thus, differ
from the general conventions that STRING properties are
But AWT doesn't do that. It uses two null-separated strings for
WM_CLASS. The webrev fixes that.
