Thanks for the suggestions.  I guess the one reproduced above is the
simplest way to go.  I roughed something in today along those lines, but it
just crashes in a different place now (in the font metrics cache).  I'll
have to revert to the previous gcj/libjava code for a while, until I can
schedule a day or so to make a working implementation (next week I hope).
In the meantime nobody's beating down my door for xlib peer updates, and my
embedded app was working fine on the older code.
