Please review the fix:

bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8165829 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8165829>
webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ant/JDK-8165829/jdk9/webrev.0 <http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ant/JDK-8165829/jdk9/webrev.0>

(The bug is currently closed as “not an issue”, which is not quite true. So once and if the fix is approved I can take the ownership of the bug).

The problem is this. Sometimes when a frame is closed there may appear a race condition:

- removeNotify() is called on the frame on EDT and it removes all the events associated with the frame from the event queue.

- The frame is requested by accessibility via the CAccessibility static methods (like CAccessibility.getAccessibleIndexInParent). Those methods are called from native on AppKit thread and they perform via invokeAndWait. The latter is wrapped with an InvocationEvent whose source is set to the frame. But, once the event is put on the event queue, it's purged by the removeNotify() call. As the result, invokeAndWait returns null. Then, in some of the mentioned methods 'null' is unboxed to a primitive 'int' or 'boolean' which results in NPE propagated to native. On the native side, the NPE is not properly handled and is just re-thrown.

I don't have a simple and safe solution for the race. So, I suggest to fix the NPE/crash at least.
