      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      If the Dock preference "Minimise windows into application icon" is selected and a JFrame that has "always on top" set true is minimised then restored the JFrame disappears after the restore animation completes. It cannot then be shown again.

      Run the test case
      Minimise the JFrame
      Click the application icon to try and restore the JFrame

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The window should be restored
      ACTUAL -
      The window goes through the restoration animation, then vanishes and cannot be shown afterwards
