The EZBoard and Shadowglen java-based chatrooms show similar behavior: when that
window loses focus and later regains it, the cursor will not be in the text bar.
 It is neccessary to click the text bar every single time.  This is not the case
in IE or Netscape of current versions.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch the window.
2. Type awhile, with the text appearing in the imput window by default.
3. Switch to another window.
4. Switch back to the java window, notice that typing will do nothing until you
mouseclick in the input bar.

Actual Results:  
Nuisance; often requires retyping the first line before I notice.

Expected Results:  
Place the cursor in the imput bar.
