Yes, thats minor fix.

Omair pointed out that for jk8 this patch is useless.

And he I tested and he was right. In 8 it really si on default classapth.

So I'm hesitating wiht it a bit. But itw currently supports also jdk7 here it is (afaik) not on 
default classapth.. so now.. Dont include and use javafx ony on 8+ or iunclude patrch and keep in 
mind to remove fxrt.jar once jdk7 will be eoled...?
