Thank you a lot, Thomas Fitzsimmons!

After talking with you in #kaffe IRC channel, I modified the
routines for dpi_conversion_factor, and everything works again.

For one willing to take a try, you can obtain the tarball[1], and build
according to the instructions in README. Here is my screenshot:


Now, both the one under GCJ and another under Kaffe look the same, and I
would like to invite GCJ java-gui-branch hackers to take Kaffe into
consideration for developping and testing.

Maybe I should commit the scripts and small patches into cvs repository
of Kaffe, so that developers can try the fresh AWT/Swing implementation
from GCJ java-gui-branch without building the whole GCJ.
