Hello Jim,

Thanks for your suggestions. As of now I taking an easy way to fix the 
issue, New changes are available at 

I couldn't write a reliable test case using public javafx APIs, the 
behavior is intermittent. However I could consistently produce the issue 
using our DRT internal test case which is based on W3C functional test[1].
