Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200808040201)
Java: 1.5.0_13; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.5.0_13-119
System: Mac OS X version 10.5.4 running on i386; MacRoman; en_US (nb)
Steps to reproduce:
-push Cmd+I to focus quicksearch
-type "plu" and the Actions | Plugins followed by other items is recommended by the quicksearch
-->> The carret is blinking in quicksearch and in editor together so that user has ambiguous information where the focus
is (see attached screenshot). In fact the focus is moved to editor so that when a user wants to delete "plu" from the
quicksearch then the change in editor is made instead.

I don't know solution to this problem, it seems to be Apple's JDK impl speciality. On Esc handling, I just pass focus to
last selected TopComponent before. No idea what could I do further, sorry. Is it possible to get rid of this state
somehow? Does it happen always (100% reproducible)?
It is 100% reproducible. The only way I can get rid of blinking caret in quick search is to click there and then click
to e.g. editor pane.
This is probably related to the underlying problem in #90371, where the blinking cursor is visible in the editor even when keyboard focus is in some other
view. Discussion in that issue (and a whole chain of duplicates) leans heavily toward a problem in the OS X JDK.
Yes the cause seems to be the same. I am marking this issue as duplicate of 90371.
