Since b43 build, Japanese text cannot be handled on AWT TextArea. The following problems are observed:
1. Cannot input Japanese. When the user commits Japanese text from the input method, it gets garbled.
2. Caret movement is incorrect. You need to hit left/right arrow key twice to move caret over Japanese characters.
3. cut/paste of Japanese text sometimes does not work.
I confirmed that backing out the fix for 4341196 could avoid the problem.
I should have commented about the OS version more specific. I confirmed that it worked fine on the following platforms:
- Windows 98 Japanese
- Windows 2000 English + MultiLanguage version w/ Japanese system/user locale selected
But the problem still persists on Windows NT 4.0 Japanese (SP6).
Regarding the problem on WinNT4.0SP6 with Japanese IME installed, I suppose that it was English NT plus Japanese Global IME. We have not supported Global IME yet, so it was the expected behavior. Please refer to 4225472.
