TextField: how to disable the accent input window for e,o,a keys

I have a TextField and when I keep one of the keys 'e', 'a' or 'o' pressed I see an odd new window that allows me to enter accent characters using the mouse. Since this new window is displayed at the wrong position (somewhere below my actual Stage) I'd like to disable it but haven't found something in the JavaDoc.

Here is a small screenshot since I don't know if I've used the correct words to describe it - it probably has a proper name:

I'm on a german keyboard and on Mac OSX using jdk1.7.0_15.jdk.
