      Java 8u20 b17 on Linux


      In Linux if I show a FileChooser from one stage with Platform.runLater() it will appear to block the rendering of ui changes in all of my other stages. Oddly, if I don't use the runLater the other stages keep rendering properly.

      Run the test class below and follow these steps:

      1. Drag the 2 shown stages apart and click "Show Chooser..." on the first stage.

      2. Mouse over the controls on the second stage and observe them responding to the mouse hover.

      3. Close the open chooser.

      4. Turn on the "Run Later Chooser Show" on the first stage and then click on the "Show Chooser.." button again.

      5. Go back to the second stage and observe now that the controls do not respond to mouse hover. The button will respond to you click on it but it is no longer rendering its own updates. The checkbox will not render as selected until you close the chooser blocking the other dialog.
