Vista SP1 IE7 1.5.0_17
an Applet, second and later dialogs lose focus. Users need to use mouse, etc to activate the
dialog to press OK or cancel.
dialogs have focus and we can press default button by space or return key.
This did not happen with XP + IE6.
If we use FireFox3.5 on Vista SP1, the problem does not happen. Users can press default
button on the dialog by space key or enter key without using pointing device since the
dialog has focus.
If I use 1.5.0_18 and later, I don't see the problem.
The symptom is similar to the following issue fixed in 1.5.0_18, though the actual operations
6643769 Applet main windows steals focus on Popup windows which is running Applet.
Due to the maintenance policy at the end user's site, my customer needs to narrow down the
cause and get the proper fix back-ported to older release (custom revision).
