      Description

      java version "1.4.0beta"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0beta-b40)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4beta-B40, mixed mode)

      This bug appears to have been introduced during the focus manager enhancements at build 35. It doesnt' appear in b34. This bug appears on both Windows and Solaris but I haven't done a lot of exhaustive testing on Solaris.

      Upon initialization of the following application, the focus owner appears to be null. If the button is added to the center of the content pane the the focus owner is correctly set to the button. I'm not sure what the exact circumstances is for setting the focus but in previous builds, the focus was set to one of the JMenus upon initialization.

      If you use "% java Bug true" to start up the test application then the timer will report the focus owner every 2 seconds.
