Due to coordinate calculation changes for multiscreen configuration, the following text should be used with the constructor:
     * Creates a Robot for the given screen device. Coordinates passed
     * to Robot method calls like mouseMove, getPixelColor and
     * createScreenCapture will be interpreted as being in the same coordinate
     * system as the specified screen. Note that depending on the platform
     * configuration, multiple screens may either:
     * <ul>
     * <li>share the same coordinate system to form a combined virtual screen</li>
     * <li>use different coordinate systems to act as independent screens</li>
     * </ul>
     * <p>
     * If screen devices are reconfigured such that the coordinate system is
     * affected, the behavior of existing Robot objects is undefined.
