I see ..

AWT EDT deadlock
You cannot make an invokeLater() here since we have to guarantee
that the AWT focus request is finished _before_ we proceed with the
native focus request.

invokeLater() would allow to 'overwrite' the native focus request,
it makes the sequence non deterministik.

So I am afraid we need to get to the grounds of it .. even though I can see/assume
the possibilities of a deadlock - however, a stacktrace would be very appreciated.
Best produced with jstack, while it's hanging.
To let it hang 'a little longer', just increase the value of

So a reproduceable test case for this issue would be great,
best if it's reproducable on GNU/Linux.

NEWT EDT lifecycle, Display, etc

A seperate test case (class file) would be appreciated.
I guess we should start a new test package with this one.

Good to know, thx.

Sure .. I allowed myself to xpost this reply to our forum as well.
