That's the way it works in Java/Swing land.  Ctrl-Tab gets you out of
multi-line text fields (JEditorPane), whether they are editable or not.  We've
been looking at using Ctrl-Tab as a general "escape out of the current
container" - look at the situation of MDI-style windows.  Once you tab into
one, how do you get out?
