DnD "Desktop Integration Warning" doesn't occur until browser window is closed/changed

        The applet drag and drop "Desktop Integration Warning" occurs only when the browser window is closed/changed. This could be days after the applet was drug to the desktop.

        Here is a use case that I think we should improve:
        drag applet out
        do stuff that buries the applet window
        close the browser tab that the applet came from.
        If I must be prompted now, I expect the dialog to come up right as I
        hit close.
        Instead, "Desktop Integration Warning" is flashing behind the browser,
        and when I bring that dialog to the foreground, the Weather now applet
        is not visible if it is behind other windows.

        Per Ken R's response to my email:
        Please feel free to file an RFE under java/java_plugin/plugin2 about this.

        To implement the functionality of creating desktop shortcuts for a
        dragged-out applet in the new Java Plug-In we only call the preexisting
        LocalInstallHandler code in Java Web Start. We could consider calling it
        earlier, when the applet is dragged to the desktop rather than when the
        user switches away from the web page, or at least we could make this an
        option controllable via an applet parameter. In the current code it was
        most natural to call the LocalInstallHandler when the web page was
        closed. Please feel free to file an RFE under java/java_plugin/plugin2
        about this.

        See email thread in comments.
        To address this RFE we should add a new applet parameter which the developer may specify to have the LocalInstallHandler called as soon as the applet is dragged out of the browser. Suggested parameter:

          <param name="eager_install" value="true">
