I am sure that there will be more. :-P

Or you could focus on fixing the issues in "debug invocation" in dialog windows. ;-)

there is another limitation of this heuristic because it is tied to the nesting depth of widgets. :-) For instance, the MessageNames tool has the wrong defaultFocus because the text morph in the search bar on the left is nested into a panel whereas the list on the right is not nested. Would you agree to extend the heuristic to fix that? :-)

For example, in the Monticello Browser, I would expect the package list on the left to be focused by default, but instead, the repository list on the right is focused. What would you think about a strategy that orders all descendant morphs by their natural reading order and always chooses the left-most from the first row (#x ascending , #y ascending)? Or would you prefer to specify this information in the relevant toolbuilder methods instead?

By default, the first keyboard-interested (sub)+morph is selected, but you can specify a different focus holder by setting the #defaultFocusMorph property of the window or the #defaultFocus parameter of the pluggable window spec.
