Sub Tasks

Description
When using Sun Java Plugin 1.4.2_05 with Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6.0,
javascript even handlers become asynchronous.  When an applet call is made
during the execution of a Javascript event handler, another event handler
fires interrupting the original event handler.

According to the bug 4838960, this issue has been addressed in Java Plugin
1.4.2_04.  But we still see the same issues with plugin 1.4.2_04,1.4.2_05 though
less frequently than before. 

For simulating the problem, see the comments part.

EVALUATION

It appears that fix for #4838960 doesn't cover all the cases

We could solve the event handlers issue by not dispatching messages during JS->Java call. This however will introduce problems when modal dialogs are shown in JS->Java call. We found that the later problem could be avoided by dispatching the messages only during the modal dialog is shown.
