I suggest to convert the jboolean "detectable" to Bool explicitly to
avoid any potential compiler warnings. No need for a new webrev with
this change. The fix looks fine to me otherwise (though I see no point
in modifying make/sun/xawt/mapfile-vers - the old build is dead.)
Did you run KeyEvent regression tests with your fix (both open and
closed)? Also, perhaps TextArea/TextEdit tests (from both AWT and Swing)
might be worth running as well.
