#1130 On startup, database filename is highlighed, even though it doesn't have focus

Mitch Ames

Using Password Safe v3.32 on Windows 7, when I run the executable and get the Safe Combination Entry dialog, the previously opened database filename is shown (as expected), the focus/caret is on the Safe Combination field, ready for me to type (as expected) - but the database filename is highlighted, which it ought not be. (Eg if I tab to the database field, then tab away, the highlight disappears.) The highlight makes it look like my keyboard entry is going to go to the database field, which is a little confusing. (The keystrokes actually go to the Combination field, so it works OK - it's just a little disconcerting because the UI is not consistent.)

This problem is new to v3.32 - v3.31 worked fine.
