FYI, tested on Vista64, same issues as previously reported remain.  I saw the fix for keyboard focus and figured I would give it a shot in case it was related.  Thanks!


We haven't forgotten about the Vista 64 problem.  We just haven't been able to get a test environment together yet with everything going on here. We'll post that fix in the list when we get to it. Thanks.

Sounds great, thanks!
