Great :-)))
Up to now I had not noticed that buttons depended on the traversalOn 
property. I understand from your answer that it is likely because I am 
working on Mac.
Well, I have just discovered that I could have get the answer if I had 
better read the Doc ! (under "Important", on the TraversalOn page !). I 
am a bit ashamed!

Actually, It was the last (known) problem I had to figure out, as for 
the adaptation of my app. to Windows.

I thank you very much for helping me once more :-)
