Most JavaFX apps unusable on Windows 10 (combo boxes bug)

Yes, I can confirm this bug is present when running on a Dell XPS 15 
which does have both a touchscreen and an integrated Intel GPU for 
desktop display (HD 4600). The application hangs even though I'm using a 
mouse and not the touchscreen to click on the combo box.

That's a catastrophic bug that needs to be fixed in an emergency update. 
Many new Windows laptops have Intel GPUs with touchscreens that you 
can't disconnect, and Microsoft is pushing Windows 10 to all of them. 
Apparently no JavaFX app with a ComboBox can run on them now!
