I start by opening a JAVA of JSP file using the default source editor. As soon as I accept a VNC connection to my
machine the only keys on my keyboard that are working with the editor are:
The up/down keys scroll the position of the text up and down within the editor pane but the same keys cannot be used to
move the cursor position up/down.
I can change the position of the cursor with the mouse as well as highlighting and drag/dropping text but right-clicking
does not display the right-click menu.
This problem only affects the file that is in focus at the time on connection. Closing the focused JAVA/JSP file and
then reopening the same file corrects the problem.
In case it matters, if a VNC connection is closed (after correcting the problem) the same problems described above occur.

The VNC client/server thatn I am using is v4.1.3 (free edition) of RealVNC found here: http://www.realvnc.com.
I think the problem is not on the NetBeans side but passing to "editor" with the request for evaluation. Thanks
This is most likely a JDK problem or something between JDK/OS/VNC. As this is not a typical user scenario I'm marking it
P4/future. It could be interesting to know what exactly the problem is in regard to other issues that complain about
loosing keyboard functionality in the editor (eg. issue #154292, issue #119617). They never referred to VNC and
typically could not be reproduced, so if this problem is actually reproducible with VNC it may proof useful investigating.
Resolving all issues with milestone "future" as LATER. If you feel strongly that
it should be implemented please reopen and set the target milestone to "next".
