Description

Name: gm110360			Date: 06/05/2002


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-b92)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-b92, mixed mode)

FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :Microsoft Windows 2000
[Version 5.00.2195]


A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
In Windows 2000, I have an AWT TextField which takes the
redirected Standard output.  However, Printlns show up
strangely in it (They are inserted earlier than would be
expected).  This behavior is not seen in JDK 1.3.1_02 on the
same machine.

REGRESSION.  Last worked in version 1.3.1

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1.Run the sample application.
2.Press the button in it.
3.Press again.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
Would expect to see the following result:
Test println
Test println2
Test println
Test println2

However, in JDK 1.4.0 on Win2k, the second (and subsequent)
button presses insert rather than append the text, resulting
in the following result:

Test println
Test printlnTest println
Test println2
2

This bug can be reproduced always.
