Description Scott Violet 2006-01-18 16:18:43 UTC
This is with 1.6 b67, haven't tried 1.5. On an XP box when I quickly do an
alt-tab from NetBeans often times focus does not go to the other app, but
instead remains with NetBeans. For example, lets say focus is on NetBeans and I
want to alt-tab to Firefox. If I quickly do alt-tab FireFox momentarily flashes
to the front, then NetBeans comes to the front again. When this happens the
'File' menu remains highlighted in NetBeans. I've tried this with SwingSet2 and
was unable to reproduce, implying (hopefully) it's a problem with NetBeans
rather than the JDK.

I believe this is JDK bug, I reproduced with SwingSet2 also. Actually , this is
duplicate of 46826, which contains exact reproduction steps.
