Yes, I am. Sorry if I was not clear on that point -- all my comments 
refered to the native code. The location of the native code does not 
have any effects as such on the product. Most other native libraries 
were "fixed" in this way, but the awt code was left out, probably as you 
say, due to excess head-scratching. :-)
