JPasswordField reads contents to JAWS when backspace-deleting

Just noticed that JAWS reads the contents of a JPasswordField, character by
character, if the backspace key is used.

When entering the password, JAWS reads of "star" "star" "star" as it should.

But when you delete, it reads off the actual character being deleted.

Is there something I can do about this? I'm observing this with the most recent JRE (build 1.4.1_03-b02) and JAWS 4.5.138.
