[As-users] Problem with SloppyFocus and Java 1.5

I noticed a very strange behaviour when switching on my platform
from Java 1.4 to Java 1.5 (alias Java2). The afterstep SloppyFocus
does no longer recognize Java application windows. When I move
the cursor into a Java application window, the focus remains
at the previous window.

If I have an active text area in the Java application, I can click
there and the focus changes to the new window after that click.
Without an area which is set to "accept_keystroke", there is no
way to get the focus to the Java application.

Any ideas how to circumvent that problem?

Best wishes
