           Summary: Change data file dialog has misleading highlighting and
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: matt truch net

Version:           1.2.0_svn_502068 (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
OS:                Linux

When you open the "Change Data File" dialog, it can be very confusing as to what input field is active.  There are two text input fields, the seach/selection one (with the paintbrush? next to it) and one labeled "File:".  When you first open the dialog, depending on how and if you previously used the dialog one, the other, or BOTH of the fields will be selected.  Also, in almost all cases, BOTH fields will have a blinking vertical bar cursor, totally confusing the user as to which field is editable (although it's usually the top one).  

Expected behavior:  The blinking cursor should only appear in the currently active field, and only the active field should be hilighted in blue (perhaps the non-active one can be in the shaded grey or what-have-you).
