The shortcoming in the implementation of the native event loop handler made it non-reenterable and thus lead to the deadlock in the JavaFX Drag and Drop in the Swing/JavaFX interoperability mode.

EVALUATION Need to fix the implementation of the Java_sun_lwawt_macosx_LWCToolkit_startNativeNestedEventLoop function and make performDrop operation synchronous as it was intended.
