There is a serious problem in fix to 7112643.
The infrastructure changes cause NoSuchField exceptions when running with 1.5.0 or 1.4.2.
Although the calls to dialog.setModalityType are bracketed with calls to isJavaVersionAtLeast16(), the modalityType itself is initialized in and passed to DialogHelper w/o such bracketing.
This causes the exception whenever modal dialogs are to be shown.

Verified using b112

EVALUATION combine interface for alwaysOnTop and ToolkitModal - since we always use these together. - only refer to Dialog.ModalityType inside ifJavaVersionAtLeast16() block.
