I reported a focus bug early in 2010:
which was fixed:
However, testing the latest ROX-Filer from git (which is used in the just-released Puppy Linux Wary-edition 5.0), there is still a focus problem, as reported here:
Describing it here:
You can right-click and from the menu if you select "Open As Text" or "Properties" then great, the focus is released from the icon. However, if you select "Send To" (patched by me to "Open With") then focus is not released -- the icon remains highlighted. This is a bug.
Note, I patched the message string in the menu, Puppy caters to Windows refugees and they are more familiar with "Open With". I did not modify the code in any other way.
As the icon does not get released, errors can occur in a future operation in that Rox window. Users complain that they have to remember to click the mouse-pointer inside the window to de-select the icon before performing another operation.
