Hi Fritz,

Thanks for trying. Have you also tried saving the stack and clicking  
around a bit to change the focus repeately from and to the field that  
contains the characters? If you have and still didn't see a problem,  
I'll send you my stack -- which doesn't contain anything special afaik.

Best regards,
