AWT TextField bug in combination with TextArea

If I create a small test application with a AWT TextArea and a AWT TextField some problems occur when I use Ctrl+TAB from the TextArea to the TextField. The first character typed into the TextField is being consumed. I have tried to search the bugg database at Suns website, but can't find any reports on the problem.

Anyone experienced similar issues?

Try it in NetBeans by creating a Frame with a TextArea and a TextField....takes 5 seconds to test.
