        Description

        Neither my backspace key nor my delete key have any effect in any field when using Bugster. The control-H key, however, does work as I would expect backspace to work.

        Thanks to Alan Harder for the test program texttest.java (see attachments). This is NOT a bugster problem, but a problem with java, possible related to keyboard identification/keymappings. I've got a Sun type 6 usb keyboard attached to an Opteron desktop running java 1.5.0 b64, S10_69+amd64 bits and Cinnabar_19. When I have the numlock turned on, many keys cease functioning, including but not necessarily limited to: backspace, delete, return, tab, and the zero on the number pad.

        I can confirm this as well. This also explains why I only see this problem
        on my desktop and not on my laptop which runs identical Solaris and Java bits.

        I would like to request to have this bug re-opened. We are seeing reports of this issue again and it seems like it has been re-introduced. We are seeing it in 1.5.0_17 and 1.5.0_18 we did not see this in 1.5.0_14.

        We have had several reports of this on the sunray servers within Swan.

        Mike Miller (###@###.### ) has taken several calls from users on this.
        why it's marked as 'Fix failed' on 2009-05-06 ?
