I have a frame, which has a security warning icon. Before the frame is visible, i open a native application say Windows explorer. When the frame is realized the frame border gets flashed. The flashing border on be seen on the native application. This dn't happen for 6u10 b30 . This can be reproduced in 6u11 b01 pit build. This may be regression of http://monaco.sfbay/detail.jsf?cr=6740941

This can be reproduced on both vista & windows xp. I have attached the screen shot.

Step to reproduce :- 
1) Run swingset2.
2) Open any native application before swingset2 is launched.
Example:- Windows Explorer
3) Observe that frame flashing border is seen on the native application. If you see the same then the bug is reproduced.

EVALUATION With the new implementation of security warning banner in 6u12, this bug is not reproducible, as the border is not used at all (only security icon is used). Perhaps this could be closed as a dup of the 6u12 fix bug id.

EVALUATION This is a regression of 6728768. However, due to the limitations of the native system this bug cannot be fixed. See 6728768 for more details.
