Meanwhile I've performed some performance measurement using the GUIMark2
for FX, and here are some results:
w/o the fix: ~4.22 FPS
with the fix: ~4.19 FPS
w/o the fix: ~21.0 FPS
with the fix: ~21.3 FPS
So it looks like there's no any major performance difference between the
CToolkit and XToolkit Java2D pipelines.
