In short, user code that throws a NullPointerException within a .display (fired via 
the Animator class), will be caught by something higher up in Jogl and rethrown as 
a totally unrelated exception.

Need to add more logic to the main try/finally block in GLContext so that
exceptions thrown during free() don't hide exceptions thrown during the listener
body. Need a test case for this.

(Finally reproduced this with a buggy version of the ProceduralTexturePhysics demo.)

The central try/finally cause in GLException.invokeGL() called GLContext.free()
after catching and rethrowing the end user's exception from the
GLEventListenerdisplay() routine, which caused the end user's exception to be
overwritten with the internal GLException. Fixed this by initializing the cause
of the internal exception, and also continuing to propagate out the end user's
