Description
Vista, IE7 + 1.5.0_17 

When multiple modal JDialogs are shown, closing one would make IE a active window.
JDialogs uses same Applet's embedded frame as owner/parent.  This behavior confuses
user.

If I run it with 6u18, IE becomes active for short period of time, but remaining JDialog 
will become active soon.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

The fix introduces a concept of the active windows list which is used to find
the window to be activated next (similarly to what is done in JDK 6). This list
is a list of windows sorted by the time of activation: later a window is
activated, greater its index is in the list. The list is stored as a property
in sun.awt.AppContext and is kept up to date by the KeyboardFocusManager
"activeWindow" and AppContext GUI_DISPOSED property change listeners.
AwtDialog::ModalNextWindowToFront() uses this list to activate a proper window
on closing of a modal dialog.
