Strange Loss Of Focus

There must be something about your particular situation because copying a
group from a palette to a toplevel stack didn't interfere with a simple
mouseMove handler in the palette stack for me, irrespective of whether it
was initiated from the palette stack or the toplevel stack.

I guess it's no better than using the click command, but does focusing on a
particular control on the palette stack after the copy also bring the
palette back into play?
