Crazy behaviour of JMenu

I am facing with a strange problem in JMenu.... I have a Swing application in which various menus are available. On selecting each menu item, different screens will be loaded.(through actionlistener). But when I try to select a particular menu item repeatedly, sometimes menu item which is ahed of currently selected menu item gets triggered and corrosponding screen gets loaded. So when I select a menu item, screen for adjacent menu item gets loaded. But this doen not happen frequently.

Note: different screens are loaded for each menu item in actionlistener code which is in Even Dispatcher Thread.

I was not facing the issue when I used JDK 1.4. Now I am using Java 5 and this issue happends without any code changes.

Please let me know how to solve the issue.

without posting any code that shows the odd behaviour,
what type of response are you expecting?

guessing just wastes everyone's time.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
