Looks like Clemes Eiserer beat you to it: 
http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/java/2003-08/msg00330.html . It would be great if 
you could work together on bringing this code back into kaffe and 
merging more of GNU Classpath's core AWT implementation into kaffe.

p.s. James, I've heard on IRC that you had some problems building kaffe. 
Could you post a bug report, so that something can be done about it?
