Bug review ID: 9057302.

TavleView's setMouseTransparent no longer makes mouse events(like 
clicking) transparent for that TableView when set to true in JavaFX 11. 
In Oracle 9 and 10 it did, however. I vaguely remember compiling OpenJDK 
10 with JavaFX integrated and had the same issue even though Oracle 10 
did not have the bug.

I personally use this to create an On Screen Display for displaying some 
GPU information while playing games in Linux(Yes, I know it's incredibly 
bad to do that since the desktop is still being rendered). Because of 
this bug, in-game menus cannot be clicked if they are in the top left 
corner(where the window is) as the mouse transparent method is no longer 

(While i'm at it, does JavaFX *always* render the desktop even if a 
JavaFX application is fullscreen?)
