Graphics buffer(ImageBufferJava)[1] and renders SVG contents into it. 
Once the SVG is rendered in the temporary graphics buffer, WebCore will

as drawing is completed, temporary graphics buffer will be destroyed.

FX WebView's GraphicsContext APIs are asynchronous in nature(rendered in

have been destroyed even before rendering the SVG content into it. At 
later point of time, when Image::drawPattern is executed in render 
thread, it will be accessing a GraphicsContext of an destroyed object.

Solution: Before destroying an Native ImageBuffer, flush all its render 
queue commands synchronously, So that it's content will be rendered as
