It's good to see these tests changed to run headless and will make the 
test execution much more reliable. Aside from the mtrace demo there are 
a couple of other tests that periodically hang initializing AWT, at 
least when running via ssh and then depending on whether someone is 
logged in and other configuration settings. Some of the shell tests for 
serialization come to mind (BTW: no problem doing that via a separate 
bug, just mentioning that there are other tests that are problems too).

One question, and this may be a question for Artem or others, is that in 
CommonSetup.sh you set AWT_TOOLKIT=XToolkit. Is that right?
