AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit does not work well and introduce many problems to java
apps, to solve the gray window problem use just the setWMName workaround.
There's another known problem with java issue
java apps appear to receive focus but keyboard doesn't work until user
clicks on the window.
Have not applied the patch yet, but it seems to solve this.
