      Description

      I have multi-monitor setup on solaris configured with 2 independent screens connected to 2 different video boards. I am creating a frame one on each monitor and each of them is having a textarea. I am selecting some text from the source textarea on mon1 and dragging it to the second monitor to drop it in the target textarea located on mon2. But when I drag the text, the mouse does not move to the secondary monitor and it stops at the periphery of the primary one. So could not drag the text across monitors.

      This is reproducible only on solaris and not reproducible on win32, linux + xinerama. This works fine on the previous releases such as 1.4.2, 1.4.1 etc. This is reproducible only since Tiger and hence a regression in tiger. This is reproducible on mustang as well.

      I have attached a sample test. Execute the sample test on a solaris (CDE) with multi-mon. 2 frames would appear, one on each of the screens. Select the text from the text area in the mon from which you are running the app and try dragging it to the secondary monitor. If the mouse stops at the periphery of the first monitor, the bug is reproduced.

      Drag-n-Drop works fine on the same configuration in tiger/mustang when setting the system property "awt.dnd.motifdnd" to true.
