Thanks for taking this one on.

The change to looks fine to me.

For test/java/io/Serializable/resolveClass/deserializeButton/ 
then I suggest removing the "was java.awt.Button" references from the 
comments. The reason is that it will likely confuse future maintainers. 
Also I think Adapter should be renamed, perhaps Element? Finally the 
Error message still includes "Button" in the message and we should 
change that. Otherwise it's great to have this test running headless.

One thing you'll need to do is remove these tests from the exclude list 
(jdk/test/ProblemList.txt), otherwise they will not be run on the Mac as 
they are currently excluded for that platform.

I realize you've run the javax.script and jrunscript tests and they pass 
for you but it may be that they aren't run (because they excluded and 
ProblemList.txt has not been updated) or maybe you just didn't run into 
the conditions that cause AWT to hang. I think these tests should have 
their @run tag changed so that they run with -Djava.awt.headless=true. 
That will allow them to be removed from the exclude list.

I looked at java/util/ResourceBundle/Control/ and it 
appears that -Djava.awt.headless=true has added as part of the 
forward-port of the Mac port so I think this means it can be removed 
from the exclude list now.
