java version "1.2.2"
Classic VM (build JDK-1.2.2-001, native threads, symcjit)

WindowsDesktopManager cycles windows in creation order, not activation order.

Relevant Windows MDI activation rules:

Activating a window brings it to the top of the z-order.
Ctrl+F6 sends the active window to the bottom of the z-order;
the window that now on the top of the z-order becomes active.
Ctrl+Shift+F6 activates the window at the bottom of the z-order.

I hope you didn't copy this error from Programmer's File Editor
(now sadly defunct) which exhibits exactly the same error.
