Actually, I would be more than surprised if this works. Think of thread sync in
the event dispatcher thread (this is usually tightly coupled to the VM / thread
system in use).

The right way would be to use the Xlib AWT as a template to write a Win32 based
one (i.e. type-2: lightweight widgets). This really isn't too hard to do
(maybe 3 weeks), and I really would appreciate if somebody eventually would
help out with this.
