Description
Create a multi-display configuration with common coordinate system and run the attached test. It creates a Robot using the second constructor, new Robot(gd), and moves mouse with that robot somewhere not so close to the north-west corner of the each screen in turn.
You will see in the printout that pointer info about the secondary screen is null.

Now, if you change the test and use another Robot constructor (without parameter), that info is correct every time.

I have OS X 10.8 and jdk 7u40 or 8 b95 but cannot say confidently it is a system-related issue.

RULE 2D_MultiMonitor/RobotMultiScreenTest Exception java.lang.NullPointerException

Yes, it can be reproduced on 7u6, actually Mouse doesn't move to expected position, it moved to an edge between screens. ������������������������������������������������������������ ���XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX���} At this piece of the edge MouseInfo.getPointerInfo() = null ���XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX������������������������������������������������ ���XXXXSecondaryXXXXXXX���XXXXXXXXXXXXXX��� ���XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX���XXXXPrimaryXXXXX��� ���XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX���XXXXXXXXXXXXXX��� ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������
