Description ihsahn 2013-04-04 09:59:09 UTC
This seems a new reincarnation of bug #119617, I am opening new defect per comment


- netbeans 7.3. netbeans 7.3.1, current dev
- Oracje JDK 1.7 u17 64 bit
- Ubuntu 12.10 with Xfce
- all of the above 64 bit system (64 bit kernel etc)

NB starts, loads project, I can edit file, but as soon as I alt-tab to 
other application and get back.. no keyboard actions are available. I 
mean click on the editor and I see that status bar indicates that curor 
position changed, but there is no cursor, I cannot type anything etc.. I 
may leave NB open and do some other work and after some time when I get 
back cursor is available, but of course when I switch to other 
application for a moment, everything starts again... making it impossible to do any real work.

I've tried following things with no effect:
- Netbeans 6.2
- Jdk 1.7 u 17 32 bit

the only thing that currently works is downgrading jdk to 1.6 so it would
suggest that it's indeed JDK issue, however bug linked in #119617 as root cause is closed long ago....

also, exactly the same configuration, except that running on 32 bit 
system shows no problems.

Can you please try your issue in Notepad.jar?
'java -jar $JAVA_HOME/demo/jfc/Notepad/Notepad.jar'
Comment 2 ihsahn 2013-10-22 18:51:08 UTC
It works right now. It get fixed around update u40. I'm marking this as resolved/invalid then. 

btw: I don't know how this happened but I must missed an email with Milutins comment ;/
