Classic VM (build JDK-1.2.2-W, green threads, sunwjit)
It is still not possible for a user to pop down a menu by clicking
outside the window containing the menu (for example on the desktop).
My understanding (from 4109607) is that this is not possible without
an enhancement to the runtime (4290715). The person who worked on
4290715 incorrectly states that you can use the windowDeactivated
event to determine when to pop down the menu, but this does not work
on Unix systems when you have your focusPolicy set to pointer.
As a result it is still not possible for the swing people to implement
a fix for 4109607. This results in no fix for at least the following
Note also that 4109607 *is not* a duplicate of 4290715, it simply
requires that 4290715 be fixed before it can be addressed.
Please reopen both 4109607 and 4290715.
