      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      reference to bug https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8028617 which fixed most of the ctrl key combinations. However the keys QWE and the keyboard (QWERTY layout) are the keys ',.

      On Mac doing a CMD+, opens the preferences window.
      When Netbeans is open this captures the key sequence of CMD+, and CMD+W so the preferences open and the current window is closed.

      If you run the Frame1 class from the referenced bug and click either control , or command , the output is ^ , W W or CMD , W W

      It should be ^ , , or CMD , ,
      The W should not be part of the key sequence.
      Same for ' and .


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Open netbeans
      Select OS dvorak key layout
      cilck CMD ,

      preferences open and current window closes

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      only preferences should have opened

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
