Thanks for your answer. It took me some time to figure out, but in the 
end the patch was really trivial (attached). The reason was that 
KeyEvt.dispatch() reused the current KeyEvt object for KEY_TYPED events 
right after issuing KEY_PRESSED.

I've changed it so that it will create a new KeyEvt object. It will even 
re-use a cached object if caching is activated (it's off by default, see 

Gzz (compiled against IBM's JDK so far) runs for me under Kaffe, now. 
Success! :-)

Thank you,
