I guess calling the SGE.displayChanged() on some random thread is 
incorrect, there is no any synchronization, so these threads can be 
executed in parallel, and this can cause more issues if some client code 
can be executed on this thread. It seems the right fix would be:
  - Check that there is no any client code on this path(including all 
  - Updates the internal state of SGE on the toolkit thread.
  - Notify all listeners on related EDT(if there is some users code) or 
directly on the toolkit thread if there is only our code.

I think that XToolkit and LWToolkit should uses this logic already.
