Description fcpnokia 2007-12-15 23:10:37 UTC
When using netbeans on a PC, if one presses ALT-TAB to context switch to another application and then presses it again 
to context switch back to netbeans, the gui shows the "File" menu as selected.  This should occur if the user is using 
netbeans (or any other windows app) and presses the ATL key.  It should not happen when one context switches back to 
netbeans.  The results of this bug is that after every context switch to netbeans, one is required to press the ESC 
key to move focus back from the "File" menu to the editor when they had previously been using.

Known Swing bug, not Netbeans specific...see info in duplicates. Anyway thanks for the report.
