JDialog with JTextArea can't accept focus when setResizable(false) called

    Details

      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      java version "11-ea" 2018-09-25
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11-ea+23)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11-ea+23, mixed mode)

      OS: Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G65)

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When a JDialog containing a JTextArea is created and setResizable(false) is called, the dialog won't accept focus and no text can be entered in the text area (command-tab or mouse click events both fail to focus the dialog).

      When the call to JDialog.setResizable(false) is removed, I can focus on the dialog and enter text as usual.

      REGRESSION : Last worked in version 10.0.2

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Compile and run the attached source code
      2. Click the button labeled "Press the button"
      3. Attempt to focus on the dialog that appears and enter text

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      It should be possible to focus on the dialog and enter text
      ACTUAL -
      It is not possible to enter text and the dialog title appears greyed out, suggesting that it's not focused

          }
      }

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Get rid of the setResizable() call.

      FREQUENCY : always
