        ========
        Unable to select the items in 'input method selection' popup menu by using keyboard.I can able select the items only through mouse.Even Esc key is also not working for dispose the popupmenu.

        Focus is not gaining to popup menu from parent when it shows on parent so that unable to select the items through keyboard.
        By default popup menu is not gaining the focus till click on popup menu item.Once focus gains then we can able to select the items by keyboard.

        6492266 is a partial fix.The fix is not working for above mentioned scenarios.

        JDK Info:
        =========
        java version "1.6.0_02"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_02-b01)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_01-b06, mixed mode)

        Steps to Reproduce:
        ====================
        1. Copy CodePointIM.jar file from jfc demo into '${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext' folder.
        2. Run a swing webstart application that have a text field, e.g., Bugster.
        3. Place the focus on text field.
        4. Show the 'input method selection' popup menu.Click on the system icon on the top-left corner of the frame and then select "Select Input Method" menu item.
        5. Popup menu is actually displayed.
        6. Select the menu items through keyboard.

        Expected Behavior:
        =================
        Should select the popup menu items using arrows keys.

        Actual Behavior:
        =================
        Unable to select the items using arrow keys.Only user can able to select through mouse.
        I found a couple of new problems with the 'Select InnputMethod' menu:
           1. A menu item cannot be selected with keyboard even if you can go through menu items with arrow keys. I.e. SPACE or ENTER don't make an action.
           2. If mouse cursor is above the menu and then it is moved outside the menu, the menu loses the focus and cannot be handled with keyboard.
