I kinda dislike that behavior. I mean, there is a big fat blue focus border that has the purpose of telling the user that the one with the blue border (style dependent) is the one that currently has focus. The blinking cursor is yet another indication that the field has focus. I think that is enough.

This just fixes a race condition, I don't quite understand your reservation, Mark?
