Selecting the 'tab selector' (i.e. the little downward pointing arrow on the top
left of the editor pane used to select an already opened file) causes the text
cursor to disappear. This prevents any further editing of any files. Also, all
subsequent keystrokes are being consumed so no keboard commands can be issued.
This is a showstopper bug. The only way I've found to recover from it is to
restart netbeans. This bug is present in both RC1 and RC2
I'm running netbeans on Mac OS X 10.4.4.
Whoops, I meant to say that the tab selector is on the top RIGHT of the editor.
