If you look at any Windows application you will
see that even though a system menu item is greyed out it still
gets focus when you move the mouse over it. The
same happens in Swing for a JFrame. However, for
a JInternalFrame if a system menu item (like restore)
is greyed out it doesn't get focus.

The complaint is valid: we follow the motif feel even on Windows. Should fix.

This is a problem with JMenu and JPopupMenu, not the JInternalFrame itself.

Disabled components are never notified about mouse events. Mouse
events that are normally forwarded to a component are discarded when
this component is disabled. There's no way Swing can recognize that
mouse have entered a disabled menu item.
