Hi, Petr.
getViewPtr() is not a good method in PlatformWindow interface because 
pointer to NSView is macosx specific implementation.
Could you please split VERY long line in the CDropTarget.m
What does it mean "Returns the first " in the getDropTargetAt. Should it 
be hw/lw?
Check your fix with the example from the CR:8007155. Just modify for dnd.

> 1. The deadlock occurred because in CDragSourceContextPeer.dragMouseMoved methods on components were invoke on the Appkit thread. They blocked on an AWTTreeLock if EDT had already took it. EDT trying to perform a sync selector on the Appkit thread lead to a deadlock. So the logic of working with components are moved to the EDT now.
> 2. DragSource events were dispatched absolutely incorrectly. Now we dispatch them the same way as on other platforms.
> 3. CCursorManager contained a workaround for the issue that we were not able to perform sync selectors during the dnd. Now sync selectors are processed during drag, so this workaround is not needed any more.
> 4. The functionality to set a cursor in DragSourceListeners is implemented. It works, however it still has a couple of issues:
> 	a. Sometimes mouse events are dispatched during the dnd, which might reset a cursor. That is wrong, mouse events should not be dispatched. It is a separate issue, so this problem will disappear as mouseEvent dispatching would be fixed.
> 	b. If the DropTarget supports NSDragOperationCopy cocoa sets an NSDragCopyCursor. There is no API to disable this and I have found no suitable workaround.
> 	c. On the first drag in the lifetime of the application cursor is not set. This is due to a bug in cocoa. They reset a cursor in some setter which looks absolutely unrelated and called when the first dragging session is initialized. I am thinking about filing a bug against apple.
> 5. Some cleanup: removed unused variables.

Best regards, Sergey.
