Not being able to type in IDEA's editor window

Hi there,

Going back and forth between IDEA and other applications, it sometimes
happens that when I try to type something in IDEA the editor is not
responding as expected. Most of the keys are not processed at all (or so it
seems), although the cursor is in the editor window, blinking happily. The
up and down keys move the text instead of moving the cursor on a different
line.

Closing that editor window and opening it again seems to solve the problem.
Initially, I thought IDEA being placed on the secondary screen had something
to do with it, but the close_the_editor solution seems to indicate it's an
IDEA problem. And I don't remember seeing this in previous builds (<1126).

Anybody else seeing this?

Regards,
Andrei

Just cycling focus fixes the problem, but its still very irritating.

Unfortunately as thread says, I can't reproduce it... so will probably not
be fixed.
