Exactly what the title says. Whenever I start a Java application (I've tried with JRE 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52), I get large number of left-click events, in the range of tens per second, making Java programs unusable.
This first appeared when I updated from Java 184.108.40.206, but after I downgraded jre and experimented with older releases of Java 1.6, problem is still there.
Note that this only happens in Java applications and applets.
So how do I solve this?
The problem only starts happening after first left mouse click in the application window. Until I actually click the mouse, everything is fine. Also it takes about a second for behavior to start.
I've noticed that programs which come with their own JRE run fine and are not affected by the issue. It could be that there's some Java setting hidden somewhere where I can't find it that's causing problems.
