I'm curious about this...

Tania>      ComponentOrientation oldOrientation = orientation;
Tania>      orientation = o;

So the resulting orientation will be null?
I don't know anything about this area, so forgive me if my comments
are misguided.  But, this seems weird.  Does the Mauve test check
the result of a subsequent getComponentOrientation call?

Also, in a case like this it would be nice to update the javadoc to
reflect what happens if null is passed in.  With your patch it will
still claim to throw, which is wrong.
