Here's the way I see it in general terms:

If the behaviour is mandated by the 1.4 API spec, we
should behave as the spec says. If it is not, and
there is an inconsistency between kaffe and sun, we
should try to match Sun unless there is a good,
documented reason why we don't do so. 

In the case above, I think patching kaffe would be
better than working around bugs. You should also take
a look at the pocketlinux sources for the AWT classes
you are going to patch, as they might already contain
fixes for such problems.
