Can't type into JTextField using RHEL5


Hello all, just some background info...I've been running a Java (1.6.0_10) application on RHEL4 for a long time without any problems. A user logs in by typing their user name and password into two separate JTextFields. This works perfectly on RHEL4 but recently I upgraded a machine to a RHEL5 64bit Server and when the application runs it allows you to type in a username but when you tab or click on the password box, it doesn't allow you to type. To get around it, I have to click on the Login button and then drag the mouse off and reclick on the password box before it allows me to type. I have also tried upgrading to the newest Java and no luck. Any ideas or suggestions will help. Thanks!

What kind of environment contains the entry field? A standalone Java application, an applet embedded in a Web page, a server-side entity, what? And what Java engine is in use? And do you have access to the Java source code?

It is a standalone java app which i do have access to src...As far as which java it runs using jdk1.6.0_10 and whatever vm is packaged with it. It's just strange how on RHEL4 everything's fine but with RHEL5 it's behaving like it is.
