The same is applicable to ScreenMenuPropertyListener as well because it 
is also L&F specific.
I assume that the changes in AccessibleAWTComponentHandler/etc are 
necessary because somecode installs the listeners on the components, 
since the bug is not reproduced in Metal I assume that this listeners 
are installed by Aqua, in this case these listeners also should be 
removed from the component before serialization.

Best regards, Sergey.
