I cannot compile a personal profile build with the current sources. I have the
following build problem for both linux and windows mobile:

Compiling build-time classes...
cannot resolve symbol
symbol : constructor EventDispatchThread
location: class java.awt.EventDispatchThread
dispatchThread = new EventDispatchThread(name, has not been modified for 19 months (it is at revision 351),
so I guess this change to is to blame:

Revision 12501 (previous one 351):
