Hello Phil,

Thank you for review of this fix. It is correct, this code area was 
already touched by 3 fixes which you specified, but they are just 2 
attempts to fix the same issue and 1 rollback of the 1st fix, which was 
dictated by the fact that at that time JDK 9 passed RDP 1. Answers to 
your questions are following:

1.  No, absolutely, this bug is not a regression from the fix for 
8181659. This bug exists in JDK for a long time, this is proved by the 
fact that I was able to reproduce it with JDK 8u112 b16, while the fix 
for 8167102 was never released in GA JDK 8 update, except for 1 released 
build JDK 8u131 b32. I consider this bug as an independent issue from 
8167102, because of a difference in a test scenario (in 8167102 
"java.awt.print.Printable" interface is involved, in this bug 
"java.awt.print.Pageable" interface is involved), but at the same time 
they both have the same root cause. The end user, which reported 8167102 
changed conditions by moving its application from setting "Printable" 
object to a printer job to setting "Pageable" object 
("java.awt.print.Book") and encountered this issue.

2.  Yes, sure, I verified that the bug 8167102 is still not reproducible 
with this fix by using the existing "jtreg" regression test 

3.  Today I have run all available "jtreg" manual and automatic 
regression tests in the directories specified below and in our closed 
directories (total 189 tests) using both JDK 12 compiled without and 
with the fix, and verified that no new test failed on JDK 12 with the fix.

Directories with the executed regression tests:
- "test/jdk/java/awt/print"
- "test/jdk/javax/print"

4. Yes, I verified that the fix works as expected for specified by you 3 
a)  no print dialog - attached to the bug record test case 
b)  native print dialog - the created regression test 
c)  swing print dialog - the regression test in point #b with 
modification in 1 line.

Thank you,
