Panel loses focus when Tab is pressed?

I have a panel which I am listening to with a KeyListener. I have just upgraded my system to Windows XP. That bug with the event.VK_TAB still persists... not that I thought upgrading my OS would fix it. Anyways, now when I press Tab, the panel I am listening to loses focus and I do not know which panel gains focus. Since I cannot tell what has focus and the VK_TAB key does not cause an action on my KeyListener, does anyone have a suggestion on how I can either disable the VK_TAB or have my Panel gain focus again? I even went as far as to create a thread in the file which calls this Panel into view which constantly has that window get focus every 10ms. Still doesn't work. Any help would be apprecaited. Thanks!

How about using a FocusListener on your Panels?
