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.
