        Description

        Unable to type certain characters into a JPasswordField

        Affected J2SE version:
        ======================
        J2SE 6.0 from final to J2SE 6.0 Update 12

        Affected Operating Systems:
        ===========================
        Linux (all tested Distributions incl. RedHat and SuSE Linux)
        Solaris 8, Solaris 9, Solaris 10

        Error Description:
        ==================
        Characters using the "mode shift" modifier can not be typed into
        JTextComponents that are not input method enabled.

        Typing e.g. "@" (\u0x40, At-sign) or "?" (\u0x20ac, Euro sign) on a
        german keyboard where these characters are accessed using Alt-GR-q (@)
        and Alt-GR-e into a JPasswordField yields "q" or "e" instead of "@"
        and "?".

        This behaviour can be reproduced with ordinary JTextFields after calling
        enableInputMethods(false) on the JTextField.

        This behaviour is a regression from J2SE 5 where the above scenario
        worked fine.

        Reproduction:
        =============
        A test case is included in KeyboardTest.jar.

        java -jar KeyboardTest.jar

        Type into password field on top of the window. In the field below the
        type text is mirrored (we use the same document to just display the
        text).
        In the text are below we output the received key events.

        Example Log (typing "@@@"):
