I'm not certain that I'm completely following the example, but it sounds
like you are validating the contents of the entry and have to refocus
the entry if the validation fails or write to the data store and allow
focus to leave if validation succeeds.  If that's the case, you may need
to grab the focus and proactively manage focus out behavior instead of
just listening for a focus out event.
