Hi Alan,

    Can you please check with the latest Lanai EA (EA-9 - https://jdk.java.net/lanai/) on macOS 10.12?
    It includes the JDK-8258754 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8258754> fix.

    Please use -Dsun.java2d.metal=True (note the capital ’T’) to get the confirmation message printed on the terminal.
