A Swing application is started as a standalone process.
Arabic is added as a Regional and Language option.
If the language is changed from English to Arabic, an unusual message prints in the Control Panel window.
"++++Whats that? wkey 0x42 (66)"
See evaluation and comments for jdk7.
Fix is, move the annoying printout under #ifdef DEBUG.
AWT builds a keymap table for converting Windows VKey to Java KeyEvent, which assumes 1 to 1 matching. However, the keytop for VK_B in Arabic keyboard layout actually produces two WM_CHARs (Lam and Alef), thus the debug message is displayed. Transferring this to the AWT for further implementation discussion.
