   Hi Dan,

   I have integrated the fix into openjdk6 and openjdk7.

   It's not clear that I will be allowed to put it into
   6u10 (we have to justify putting stuff into this release
   at this point - well past beta) but that shouldn't be
   a big problem for two reasons:
    - fix for 6604044 (which _is_ in 6u10, openjdk6/7) improves
      xinerama detection - it will not enable xinerama support for the
      "fake" xinerama advertised by the latest X servers
    - since your fix is in icedtea and ubuntu (and now in
      the upstream openjdk6/7, along with 6604044), major
      linux distributions will have a version that works fine
