There's a chance there needs to be conditionals in the test case to use
different keyboard commands on Mac OS. I haven't yet investigated, but
this would be my initial suspicion.

The purpose of team repos is to avoid issues like this, but they add a lot of overhead and actually it would have been easier and faster if we were in the same repo because then graphics wouldn't be broken for a week.
As you know this topic has been broached a number of times internally
(and something I have been actively advocating for some time now), but
my understanding is that it is gaining momentum. Hopefully we'll get
more progress on it in the next weeks / months once everyone recovers
from JavaOne and JavaFX 8.0 stops being so darn time consuming :-)
