Mac closes multiple windows

In Win OS based systems my code works. In Mac it fails. The system behavior is this: The base window is a JFrame. It has floating above it a JDialog. An error displays (JOptionPane).
User behavior: The user hits: ESC
Observered behavior (mac only): Both the JOptionPane error window, and the JDialog content window close.
Desired behavior: Only the JOptionPane window should close.
My code: Can't give you line by line, but the idea is that I have a KeyListener for the entire JDialog window. It catches all keyPressed. I have an event.consume(); in the keyPressed.
I put a System.out.println statement in the KeyPressed method. It only displays once suggesting that the keyPressed only gets processed once.
Is the super() method closing both windows?
Thanks everyone,
Pres
