Mercury Trade changes my keyboard functionality with regard to special characters

See original GitHub issue

First of all, thanks for making such an awesome tool. I wouldn’t want to trade without it anymore. Also, I am not sure whether this issue was already happening with older versions. I certainly don’t remember it being a problem.

To my issue at hand:

Yesterday, I suddenly started having problems with typing special characters (', ", `, é, ë, è, etc.) and spent a few hours in frustration trying to fix it. As it turns out, Mercury Trade is/seems to be causing it. On my keyboard (using input language Dutch (Netherlands) - United States-International) special characters usually work as follows: when you first press the button for an apostrophe, for instance, nothing happens. Then you can press either the space bar for the apostrophe to show up, or press a vowel key to type letters such as à, ö, é.

Now, when I open MercuryTrade.jar (latest version), the functionality completely changes. The only way for me to type an apostrophe is by double pressing the key, after which two apostrophes show up and I then have to delete one. Typing letters such as é and ö becomes entirely impossible when the program is active. As soon as I close the program, everything immediately works as it should again.

While I have no idea what could be causing this, or even whether this is a result of Mercury in particular as opposed to Java in general, I wanted to bring it to your attention nonetheless. Now that I know that my keyboard settings aren’t changing themselves through some type of dark magic, it’s a minor annoyance at best, but still!

Is this intended behavior? Is it related to Overseer perhaps?
