Hi Yuri

Yes it does appear that both bugs are side effects of the changes
happening in Xorg which Java now needs to accommodate. 

I have recreated my problem in Java versions 6 and 7.

I'll need to know more about the plans you have to fix 6599351 and also
gauge how big my fix is going to be. It may not be worth us both working
on this separately.

Currently I'm imagining the changes to be small to get fullscreen
working when there's only one monitor. But I still need to understand
more about what needs to happen when multiple monitors are attached.

I understand new fixes have to mature through at least one Java 7 test
release cycle before they can be back-ported. Could you tell me when the
next Java 7 test build is due and how long the interval between them is?

How much time is there before the next Java 6 update? Would there be
enough time to get these fixes into that?

> Oleg or/and I, we can help when necessary and review your code.

That would be brilliant, thank you.
