    below is disposed, focus goes to grand-parentgrand-parent :
    JFrame with JTextField (say T1).parent : JDialog (with parent as
    JFrame) created from keyEvent on T1. This JDialog also has a
    JTextField (say T2)child : Modal Dialog (with parent as JDialog)
    created from keyEvent on T2.After child i.e., Modal Dialog
    disposes, expected behaviour is to set the focus back to the T2
