      JPopupMenus within modal JInternalFrames don't work properly

      When moving the mouse over JPopupMenu items within modal JInternalFrames,
      the selection does not change (we can still change the selection with the keyboard).
      JOptionPane puts a ClientProperty PopupFactory.forceHeavyWeightPopupKey to workaround
      the problem. However we don't even have access to this field as it is not public,
      and the fact that it wont work without it is not clearly documented. A workaround
      is to uncomment the 5 lines below (imitating what JOptionPane does).

      1) Run Code
      2) Click the Show Dialog button
      3) Click the Show Popup Menu button
      4) Move the mouse over Two or Three

      import static javax.swing.JFrame.*;
      import java.awt.*;
      import java.awt.event.*;
      import java.lang.reflect.*;
      import javax.swing.*;

      public class Test {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
          JInternalFrame internalFrame = new JInternalFrame();
          internalFrame.add(new JButton(new AbstractAction("Show Dialog") {
            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent anEvent) {
              JInternalFrame internalFrame = new JOptionPane(new JButton(new AbstractAction("Show Popup Menu") {
                public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent anEvent) {
                  JPopupMenu popupMenu = new JPopupMenu();
                  popupMenu.add("One");
                  popupMenu.add("Two");
                  popupMenu.add("Three");
                  popupMenu.show((JButton)anEvent.getSource(), 10, 10);
                }
              })).createInternalFrame((JButton)anEvent.getSource(), "Dialog");
              internalFrame.setSize(400, 400);
              internalFrame.setVisible(true);
      // internalFrame.putClientProperty(new Object() {
      // public boolean equals(Object anObject) {
      // return anObject instanceof StringBuffer && "__force_heavy_weight_popup__".equals(anObject.toString());
      // }
      // }, true);
              try { // this makes the frame modal, using reflection in the same way JOptionPane does
                Method method = Container.class.getDeclaredMethod("startLWModal", (Class[])null);
                method.setAccessible(true);
                method.invoke(internalFrame, (Object[])null);
              }
              catch (Exception ex) {
              }
            }
          }));
          JDesktopPane desktopPane = new JDesktopPane();
          desktopPane.add(internalFrame);
          internalFrame.setSize(400, 400);
          internalFrame.setVisible(true);
          JFrame frame = new JFrame();
          frame.add(desktopPane);
          frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
          frame.setSize(600, 600);
          frame.setVisible(true);
        }
      }
