Currently applets launched from JNLP files in the new plug-in use the DownloadWindow from Java Web Start for displaying download progress before launching the applet. This is a significant UI issue; visiting a web page containing JNLP-launched applets can cause several of these dialogs to be displayed. It is also causing problems such as 6660241 in which these dialogs fail to close automatically. The JNLP2Manager needs to be changed to use the GrayBoxPainter rather than the DownloadWindow for displaying progress of the applet's download.

SUGGESTED FIX http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/6u10/6661384.0 testcase: http://j2se.east.sun.com/deployment/www/tests/1.6.0_10/6661384/

EVALUATION Switched to using the GrayBoxPainter to display downloading progress of JNLP-launched applets rather than the DownloadWindow. More work is needed to completely eliminate the use of the DownloadWindow from this file, but this prevents its coming up in the normal case.
