Hm, yeah, I see how this can be confusing.

>From the programming POV, it is quite obvious, since there is a
difference between selecting and entry of the list and focusing the
widget. In principle, this should be quite easy to handle by connecting
to some onFocus signal. However, we have to take care that this only
happens if the user indeed clicks on the item while focusing, otherwise
the view would also jump when using the keyboard to focus, or clicking
somewhere else (unless a selectionChange signal is triggered, then)...
