Will the documentation be changed from:

    "For efficiency, programmers should call dispose when finished using 
a Graphics object only if it was created directly from a component or 
another Graphics object."

Zdeněk Troníček's example needs to be changed to use modal dialogs to 
make sense (Swing vs EDT), but I don't think modal dialogs are something 
to be encouraged.
