Problems initially typing in fields in register [MacOSX 10.6.2]

This as I recall was an old bug in an earlier version of MD, which was eventually fixed. It appeared to creep back in at some stage in an update to MD2008, and I'm noticing it's still there in MD2010.

Tabbing to a field in the register will sometimes not be sufficient to make that field ready to type in - even though the cursor appears to be in the field ready to go. The fix is to manually click the mouse cursor in the field an extra time. Sometimes it even takes two extra clicks. There are other odd variations on this one as well. e.g. Sometimes I get the same behaviour if I've simply manually clicked in the field without tabbing. Other times I even tab to a field and start typing - only to find that the characters I'm typing appear in another field (with what looks like the cursor still sitting in the field I thought I was typing in).
