Actually, I wish Windows worked this way. I rather like the fact that
the selected text doesn't change when you click a button. It makes
many tasks much easier to deal with.

If that's what you're interested in then you should be checking the
selectionChanged message rather than the closeField message anyway.
It's not a workaround, that's what it's for...
