      Description

      When a window is first activated (given focus by the user), there is no
      consistent notion of how a component in the window is assigned the default
      focus.

      Typically, if there is a component within the window that usually takes
      focus (such as a textfield), then that component will get focus (on Solaris),
      but this is inconsistent across the platforms.

      This is particularly a problem when a program has no obvious focus candidate
      (say, just panels or canvases) - on Solaris one is assigned focus, on win32,
      none of them get focus.

      This makes it very difficult to get keyboard input to a program.
