What does the Message Watcher say? If on clicking on a line in the fld
fires a salvo of messages, somewhere - frontscript, backscript, card or
stack script a handler is being fired that sends the focus elsewhere;
apparently the card.

Do a global script search for 'go', 'send', 'select' and 'focus'. There are
probably other ways to remove the focus but those come readily to mind.
