I've noticed that too. I didn't point this out though, because you're 
also checking the MODAL_EXCLUDED flag in your modallyBlocked(), so I 
thought it was OK. But if you can pull this check to the Java code 
before even calling modallyBLocked(), then I guess the "setEnabled" name 
would make more sense.

best regards,

>> Regarding the fix itself:
>> 1. Even though you return NO from canBecomeMain/KeyWindow, the OS will still bring the window to front of the z-order when you click it. In FX we handle this by always returning YES from canBecome* methods, however, the windowDidBecomeKey: sends a special FOCUS_DISABLED event if the window is blocked. In that case the upper level code re-stacks windows so that the blocker window always appears on the top of the z-order. Have you verified if this works fine for AWT apps with your fix?
>> 2. Also, we just don't send mouse events for blocked windows from native code to Java. Is this handled somewhere else for modally blocked windows in lwawt?

One can easily reproduce this bug by launching SwingSet2, choosing JOptionPane demo and then clicking "Show Message Dialog" button. Now, click on the "SwingSet2" window title bar and you'll see the window rapidly gaining and loosing focus.
