      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      If one runs up a swing ui programme on a Mac with the above OS and Java version, then click on a button, then hold down a A or S ( i.e. modifiable key ) for 3 seconds, nothing appears to happen. Then click in a JTextField and try and enter any text and it will not let you.

      However if you run up the application, and click in the text field first and then hold down say key A then all work normally, and even if one then clicks on a button and then holds down the A key for 3 seconds everything will work normally from then on.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 8u111

      ADDITIONAL REGRESSION INFORMATION:
      Fails with Mac OS X 10.12.4 x86_64 ( Java version 1.8.0_121 )
      Fails with Mac OS X 10.12.4 x86_64 ( Java version: 1.8.0_111 )
      Works with Mac OS X 10.11.6 x86_64 ( Java version: 1.8.0_111 )

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Make a swing ui with a button and JTextField ( HoldKeyTest.java pasted in below )
      2 Run programme up
      3 Click once on the button so it has the focus
      4. Hold a modifiable key down ( say A ) for 3 seconds
      5. Now click in the text field and try and type anything, it won't let you.

      This only happens if step 1 is done when the programme if first run up, e.g. if you click in the JTextField first hold down A then the popup of choices will appears and all will work normally even if one then does the steps 1-5 above.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      One would expect to always type text into a text field regardless if one held down a key when a button had the focus.
      ACTUAL -
      Am not able to type new text into any text field.

      ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
      No errors reported

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      I tried to use the Robot class to force a A keyHold down in a JTextField on startup of programme but this did not cure the problem.
