If the DND operation is in progress, the IME API is invoked via SendMessage() call inside InvokeInputMethodFunction() to avoid a hang. The flag isInDoDragDropLoop indicates whether the DND takes place or not. The flag works properly if the DND is performed between two Java windows. However if anything is dragged from native app, (e.g. Windows FileExplorer) to Java the flag is NOT set. That’s the root cause of the hang.

Why we cannot reuse the old flag? "isInDoDragDropLoop"? I think the Robot.waitForIdle() will hang if isInDoDragDropLoop is not set to true while dragging something from the native app.
