OK, that is good to know.
The Apple-supplied python is not installed as a framework; I don't know for the Enthought distribution.
Anyway, the MacOSX backend checks whether your Python is installed as a framework, and it issues a warning if it is not installed as a framework. For your non-framework python, was this warning issued?

Best,

Confirmed, when I installed my python as a framework, (With homebrew, `brew install python --framework`) the focus now works properly.
