initial database

accessibility::AccessibleBrowseBox::getAccessibleChild throws
IndexOutOfBoundsException and then DocumentFocusListener::notifyEvent
issues warning "Focused object has invalid index in parent"

To reproduce ...

(1) Download and open the attached "New Database1.odb" at a terminal
    command line.  Program displays window "New Database1.odb" with
    <Forms> selected in the left pane.

(2) Click <Tables> in the left pane.  Program lists table OneColumn in
    the lower right pane.

(3) Right-click OneColumn in the lower right pane.  Program displays
    pop-up menu.

(4) In the pop-up menu select Open.  Program opens window Table Data View.

(5) Give focus to a window which overlaps or covers Table Data View; window
    "New Database1.odb" will probably do the job.

(6) Give focus to the Table Data View.  Observe warnings in the
    terminal output.

the warning message at vcl/unx/gtk/a11y/atkutil.cxx:670 and

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday, I don't reproduce this, perhaps missed something?
Do you still encounter the problem?
Comment 3 Terrence Enger 2014-02-25 19:23:13 UTC
The exception is no longer evident in a debug build of master commit
f95d743, fetched 2014-01-04, built and executing on debian wheezy.  I

Thank you for the reminder, Julien.  How time flies when you are
