According to the Windows API reference, dwStyle of CANDIDATEFORM structure should be set to CFS_CANDIDATEPOS or CFS_EXCLUDE. So, CFS_POINT is wrong here.

There are two instances in AwtComponent::SetCandidateWindow in awt_Component.cpp where the incorrect value is used.

I've created the PR for jdk18 as it's a low-risk fix. If it's inappropriate at this time, I'll open the PR for mainline jdk.

It looks reasonable to me.. But for confidence, did you check if JDK-8147842, JDK-8184016 and JDK-8183504 still behaves properly.
Also, I guess since ATR is almost done, I think it will be more apt to place this PR on the mainline
