I never saw it with tabbing, whether fields are empty or not, at 
least not that I can recall, but may be there is something else at 
play for you which leads to trigger this issue.

Quality control issues that Richard gave links to seem to indicate 
that there is a number of circumstances that can trigger field 
misbehavior. It can be interesting to have a stack that tells which 
object is selected and which is focused at all times. May be that 
gives a clue over time.
