Problem with TAB activation via mouse click

#1
I'm running TC 12.11 on Win7 x64. I have two TCC prompts running - in a split window configuration. I can switch between the prompts fine with mouse clicking and with keystrokes. However, if I switch to another application, then switch back to a specific TCC prompt via mouse click - the prompt's TAB becomes bold like it is active - but typing continues to go into the inactive prompt. Anyone else see this behavior?

Thanks,
-Chris

I was able to reproduce this and after a little digging I found that (1) it's a Microsoft unfeature, but (2) I was able to add a simple kludge-around to fix it. It'll be in the next v12 build (12.0.75) as well as the 13.0 release.
