openjdk headless now requires gtk2

Does anyone know why the headless openjdk now requires gtk2? Changelogs
say "see RHBZ 1598152" but that bug is private.  It looks like the
change was intended to affect the "headful" package and not the headless
one...

Curiosity has the better of me.

It was because of some class requiring GTK2.

Exactly.

A class included in the headless java package required GTK2?

Now I'm confused, because you seem to agree that the change should have
affected the "headful" package, but the "headless" package now requires
GTK2.  If the change was intended to affect the "headful" package, then
is this change a bug?

IIRC both normal and headless share source package. One of classes in
normal package requires GTK2.

I am not Java developer.

Was intended. Fixed in RHEL7 already.
