following the instructions here:

no annoying "[ English/European ]" window.

an annoying "[ English/European ]" window.

This bug can be reproduced always.

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
It doesn't occur with windows that don't get text input focus. But it's hard to see how to make any practical use of that!
