Here's what I found out so far about this bug.

Unsetting the DISPLAY environment variable works around the FTBFS error by skipping the failing Junit tests. However, unsetting DISPLAY is not the preferable/acceptable solution, as it simply skips the failing tests.

Check out the build.xml. Several tests are only conditionally executed, depending on whether DISPLAY is set:


<test name="org.jdesktop.application.BadSessionStateTest" if="have.display"/>

where property have.display is conditionally set earlier on based on:

<isset property="env.DISPLAY"/>

I turned to debugging the Junit tests and determined that the following tests are failing:

 <test name="org.jdesktop.application.BadSessionStateTest"
 <test name="org.jdesktop.application.CustomPropertySupportTest"
