      java version "1.4.0-beta2"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-beta2-b77)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta2-b77, mixed mode)

        To reproduce the problem, run the attached program, enter data into a cell, and
      then click on another UI component. The data that was entered is now gone.
      This happens consistently the first time data is entered into a cell and the
      table loses focus before the edit operation is completed.

      Repeat the operation, double-click on a cell, enter some data, and then click
      on another UI component. This time, the data remains, but the CellEditor
      remains active and the edit operation is not completed. If you select the
      Print Function, it is apparent that the entered data was never saved.

      The second aspect of the problem was reported against 1.2.2 & 1.4 beta. It
      also exists in 1.3. Bugs 4460382 is closed and the problem is reported fixed
      in merlin - Beta 2. Well, apparently not. In fact, the problem with the
      CellEditor has another aspect to it right now.

      I have not been able to get any of the supposed workarounds to work. There
      have been comments that this would get fixed in 1.4 - my fear is that since it
      has been closed (I believe in error), the problem will slip through the cracks.
