Description
When an applet is showing an AWT Choice and the user clicks on the popup menu, the process that is actually running the applet comes to the foreground and the popup doesn't show.

1. Install the Java plugin on Mac OS X
2. Go to http://www.pathguy.com/TimeDead.htm
3. Click on any of the popup menus
4. Notice that the process for the applet comes to the foreground and no menu appears.

Compare to Apple's JDK 6, where the popup menus appear as expected.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

We need to suppress activating the applet's process.
