      * Oracle's own update to java.awt.FileDialog is unfortunately still too limited for our needs. Although it now supports multiple file selection, one can't select directories as well and it doesn't allow drag and drop either.

      * Calling getGraphicsConfiguration().getDevice().setFullScreenWindow(this); where "this" is a JFrame instance, as we do in our full screen slide show mode seems to cause a core dump:

      2012-09-26 12:23:18.722 java[10122:8b13] Please file a bug report at http://java.net/jira/browse/MACOSX_PORT with this message and a reproducible test case.

      Attach the source code for a full screen slide show. It's a rather short piece of code and can be stripped down to a minimal reproduceable case.

      Work around this case by checking for Java 7 for Mac and simply ignoring calling getGraphicsConfiguration().getDevice().setFullScreenWindow(this)
