      Description

      Evaluating the bug 6464656 it was discovered that the root cause of the failing test java/awt/Window/AlwaysOnTop/AutoTestOnTop.java is the toFront() method that doesn't always bring a window to front as expected.

      In fact, the spec of the method DOES NOT guarantee that the window will become the top-most window. But the test is failing on an officially supported platform (Gnome/Metacity 2.10) and we feel the problem must be investigated more deeply on this platform. See the CR 6464656 for more details.
      This problem can be often reproduced using the test from description of 6472860 which is closed as duplicate of this CR.
