Yes, your example fails (Mac). I suspect that "focus" isn't actually 
activating the field. This works:

on mouseup
   focus on fld "listfield"
   select line (the hilitedline of fld "listfield") of fld "listfield"
end mouseup

Selecting text does activate the field. It sounds like a bug with the 
focus command.
