Problem with selectedChunk in Windows

Wouldn't it be wiser to do this when entering the field and reset it back
when you exit the field? This would permit both behaviors...

A guide to cross platform changes like this would be interesting. This
important information is rather dispersed across all object references in
the documentation. I hope I didn't miss something like it in the docs but
don't remember seeing it...

cheers
Xavier
