I just wanted to add another "testcase". The settings window of the FontDemo under R5 is a floating window. When you first start it up, the output window and the settings window look both active (tab is yellow) and the settings window has some kind of focus. If you click inside the text control to change the text it will get focus and you can write away. If you now click into the output window, the settings window will lose it's active look (tab goes gray). Most controls still work, you can drag the sliders, hit the checkbox and button - but you cannot get into the textcontrol anymore. Clicking inside of it has no effect on the focus, neither does clicking anywhere else inside the settings window. You have to explicitly click the tab or the border of the settings window to get to the textcontrol.
This is _very_ confusing and unintuitive. Would be great if we could do without copying this behaviour.
