      Description

      java version "1.3.0rc1"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0rc1-T)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0rc1-S, mixed mode)

      In a JFrame, within a JDesktopPane, having 2 JInternalFrames with JTextAreas and
      switching from one internal frame to the other results in the disappearance of
      the caret and the loss of the ability to select text. You can still enter text.

      The test code follows. Strangely enough, the caret reappers if you take the
      entire JFrame out of focus and back, or if you pull down the menu.

      I was unable to trace any property changes that might be doing this.
