JTextFields Are Not Working On New Computer, Arrow Key and BackSpace Fail :(

Has anyone come across this problem? I am now running an x64 version of Solaris 10 on my new machine with an Opteron x64 processor, but my Swing Apps are acting funny even after I recompile. Not all of the keys on my key board work in the JTextFields. The arrow keys, the Backspace key and the Zero (number pad) key do not seem to work.

I also notice that when I run a Swing program I get an message in the standard output that says:"Java Accessibility Bridge for GNOME loaded."

Do I need to tell swing abou my keyboard some how? The keybard works fine in all the other apps in the OS..

root in / > java -version
java version "1.5.0_06"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_06-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.5.0_06-b05, mixed mode)
root in / >

But the same problem occurrs when I compile and run in 1.4.2
Thanks so much to anyone for any hints.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
