On MacOSX cycling through windows of an App does not work. I've attached a simple testcase. The test starts 5 JFrames. When you try to cycle through the windows with [CMD + `] it will only toggle between the last 2 frames but you won't reach any other.

This used to work with 1.8.0_121. In higher JDKs (including current 11 and 12), the issue can be reproduced
Fix Request: Please approve backport of JDK-8206392 to JDK11u. JDK12 Change set: http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/jdk/rev/cfbfa216f3c0

Tried with JDK 10 and 11 on Mac OS 10.12.6. Issue was reproduced.
