When using Sogou Chinese input method 
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sogou_Pinyin) on Windows, native popup with 
input variants is appearing at the bottom right corner of the screen, not 
below text component caret, as expected (and as it does in native 
applications, e.g. in Notepad). 

The issue is reproduced with both latest Java 8 (1.8.0_131) and Java 9 builds 

It does not reproduce on Windows 7, but on Windows 10. 
Sogou Pinyin IME is a commercial product with closed sources and it doesn't follow the standard IME approach in Windows 10.

It's a regression from JDK-8184016. See http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/awt-dev/2018-January/013480.html

11/7/2017: Ready to push the fix


It looks like, Sogou IME is a 3rd party app Sogou Pinyin (http://pinyin.sogou.com/) - the most popular input method for Chinese language. The bug is reproducible on Windows 10.

Probably duplicate of JDK-8147842

does it affect 9? 10 ?
