      Description

      Since b43 build, Japanese text cannot be handled on AWT TextArea. The following problems are observed:

      1. Cannot input Japanese. When the user commits Japanese text from the input method, it gets garbled.
      2. Caret movement is incorrect. You need to hit left/right arrow key twice to move caret over Japanese characters.
      3. cut/paste of Japanese text sometimes does not work.

      I confirmed that backing out the fix for 4341196 could avoid the problem.

      I should have commented about the OS version more specific. I confirmed that it worked fine on the following platforms:

      - Windows 98 Japanese
      - Windows 2000 English + MultiLanguage version w/ Japanese system/user locale selected

      But the problem still persists on Windows NT 4.0 Japanese (SP6).

      Regarding the problem on WinNT4.0SP6 with Japanese IME installed, I suppose that it was English NT plus Japanese Global IME. We have not supported Global IME yet, so it was the expected behavior. Please refer to 4225472.
