Again, we are doing too special stuff to avoid breakage :(
The Tab key doesn't work in the 1.4 beta release, because
KeyListeners installed on Components will no longer
see KeyEvents that map to focus traversal operations.
Previously, AWT Components saw these events and had
an opportunity to consume them before
the AWT initiated focus traversal.
Code that requires this functionality should instead
disable focus traversal keys on its Components and
handle focus traversal itself. Alternately, the code
can use an AWTEventListener or KeyEventDispatcher
to pre-listen to all KeyEvents.
I haven't invented a way to get the events so that we remain compatible
and compilable with 1.1! Any ideas appreciated. This is worse than the
graphics thing: this affects the current Java code.
