The attached patch makes security prompts appear in a separate 
AppContext. This ensures that the applet's look and feel is not 
automatically set to the system look and feel.

The patch is a superset of 

This patch also implements a large part of the code necessary to allow 
applets to access their EventQueues. However, I still have to figure out 
how to use http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/awt/jdk/rev/8022709a306d to 
ensure allowing access to the EventQueue is safe. So for now, that code 
is disabled.

The patch ensures that the JNLPRuntime is always initialized in the main 
AppContext. It starts a thread in this AppContext to listen for security 
dialog messages, and shows security dialogs when it receives an 
appropriate security message. The security dialogs block the client 
applet/application until the user responds.

Any thoughts or comments?
