JDK-8146900: [SwingNode, DND]: drag-and-drop from JTable not working, drag recognized twice

Hi all,

We are developing HeapStats [1] with JavaFX 8.
This tool uses SwingNode to use JGraphX [2].

JGraphX suports Drag & Drop. However, DnD in SwingNode occurs InvalidDnDOperationException.
Callstack of it is same with JDK-8146900.

I checked OpenJDK source, the flag of DnD is static field [3].
DnD event is trapped at FXDnD, and kick the same event via secondary event loop.
Thus DnD event will be called twice, and second event will be thrown InvalidDnDOperationException.

I think we can fix it as below.
However I'm not sure it is correct.

Could you help?
