JDK 1.3, Win98SE. When I right-click the desktop and bring up a new window, the text insertion cursor (caret) disappears from the workspace window. When the newly opened window is a new workspace window, neither it nor the previous one show a caret. Switching to a different Windows app then back to Bsh restores the caret; switching between workspace windows makes it disappear again.

Bewildered,

    I made some changes to try to fix the focus issues (1.3b2)
    and it seems to be working perfectly now in JDK 1.3.
    However in JDK 1.4. the initial window doesn't get focus...
    only subsequent ones do. I'm stumped.
