1. open the testcase provided below
2. tab to the control
3. use the keyboard up-down arrow keys to navigate within the control and make
you will notice that if you use the up-down arrows, u are able to select the
options that are enclosed within the OPTGROUP - "ground" (which has the disabled
whereas, if you mouse-click on these options ("bus", "car") under disabled
Optgroup ("ground") you are not able to make the selection
since the optgroup as whole has been set to 'disabled', the user should not be
able to make a selection of the options within this control - neither by
mouse-click(which behaves correctly) nor by keyboard selection (this is not
working as desired).

Note: even the disabled OPTGROUP is not greyed out - as any other disabled
form-control is supposed to be.

The fix for this bug only shows in the trunk builds.
I can still reproduce the bug in 0.9.4 branch build + the 6.2.1 rtm builds ---
on all platforms.
Please move the patch to the 6.2.1 rtm builds, as well. Reopening bug as a
reminder to check in the patch in the next release. Thanks!
This was a part of the massive bug 34297 patch. If you want to check *that* in
to NS6.2, you're a brave man :) Please reassess this reopening--if this is
critical to that release, an entirely new patch will have to be spun.
Madhur, the fix for this bug (plus 34297) wasn't made until after the 094 branch
was cut and the fix was only applied to the trunk.
There was not any intention or nomination of this bug to be applied back to the
I'll cc: marek to see if he needs this for our embedding customer. If so, we
should just open a new bug to apply this fix.
I'm going to mark this bug fixed and verified again.
