JDK1.4.2b07 doc says:

> public void setCheckboxGroup(CheckboxGroup��g)
> Sets this check box's group to be the specified check box group. If
> this check box is already in a different check box group, it is first
> taken out of that group. If the state of this check box is true and
> the new group already has a check box selected, this check box's state
> is changed to false.
> Parameters:
> g - the new check box group, or null to remove this check box from any
> check box group.

It does not say what if the state of this check box is true and the
new group has not a check box selected. What about new group's
getSelectedCheckbox() and this box' getState().
Should be stated explicitly.

Need for jck test development.
Since it will touch javadoc CCC request needed.
