Why not :-) Everything is to make sure that Swing components operations
are done on the event-dispatching thread. I could make a build of IzPack
that reveals threading problems by outputing traces (this is based on
Scott Delap work). People could test it with their own installs since I
suspect that there are issues with some other panels. At least the
installer generated for IzPack does not have any issue now :-)
