[squeak-dev] Morphic focus

If using Polymorph with controls in a window then either you need to set the 
focus after the window is activated or, if subclassing DialogWindow, 
override either #defaultButton or #defaultFocusMorph.

Otherwise, try sending #rememberKeyboardFocus:  with your morph prior to 
opening/activating the window.

Focus handling was virtually non-existent in Morphic. Polymorph tries to 
help while maintaining some backwards compatability. Sorry it is somewhat 

Regards, Gary.
