Hi Sergey and Oleg,

Please review a fix for http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=7162144 at:



1. To prevent a hang, invokeAndWait() will throw InterruptedException 
when the EDT is interrupted. NetBeans team confirms that this solution 
helps resolve their issue.

2. There's no easy way to test it, so there's not a regression test. 
However, the bug contains a link to a huge test case that I used to 
verify this fix.

3. We're fixing this in 7u6 first, because we're currently unable to 
test it properly with JDK 8 due to broken headless mode (blocked by an 
open JVM bug).

best regards,
