JList: Only one ListSelectionEvent fired if list is disabled between events

    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      JDK 1.6.0_02

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows XPSP2

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      If the JList is disabled between the two events that the ListSelectionListener should receive when selection is changing (i.e. the deselection event with getValueIsAdjusting()=true and the selection event where it is false) the second event is not fired.
      Thus code that acts when the value is not adjusting is never called. The problem is that there are two event listeners - a ListSelectionListener and a MouseListener, and the MouseListener may decide to disable the list and prevents the ListSelectionListener to do its job.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Run the test code in 1.6.0_02


      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      1.4.2 would print
      true
      false
      Code that does something useful
      ACTUAL -
      1.6.0_02 prints
      true

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
