Having run into this a few times, myself, I agree with Xavier. If his 
change is applied, it will always be possible to ensure which button has 
focus, by pressing a key.

For example, if I want to choose the second button in a list of two, I 
just have to press Down. If the first button had focus, the second then 
gets it. If the second already had focus, it keeps it.

Without this patch, pressing Down always toggles the states of both 
buttons, and it's not obvious which has focus.
