I should have said: I keep seeing exactly that once a while as well.

As far as I can see, based on a few years of observation, it has to 
do with mis-clicking somehow. I don't know whether it is the position 
of the click or release or more conditions have to be met. However, 
whatever it is, it causes one part of the engine to think the field 
is not active for input while the other part of the engine shows that 
it is. I have a stack that I use for years for database input and 
once a while I get this behavior in one of the input fields, not 
always the same, whereas the stack works fine otherwise.
