Great. Thank you!

I understand. I'm really happy to have managed to get the patch into the
main distros already.

But I do think it would be good if it does get into 6u10. Java 6 was the
first time that full screen mode became possible with Java on Linux.
Without this fix the consumer build appears to have regressed.
