+A few more notes about this, as it is a tricky behaviour in windows
+that is not easily reproducible by everyone, depending on certain
+settings and versions:
+First off, a nice test of this behaviour on windows
+The focus rectangle is a visual cue, bound to keyboard navigation
+underlining cues. There is a checkbox "Hide keyboard navigation
+indicators until I use the Alt key" in Display Properties/Effects that
+controls both the underline of the keyboard shortcuts, but also the
+focus rectangle drawing cue.
+If this checkbox is selected: 
+- the focus rectangle *sometimes* appears, depending on whether the
+window was activated using the mouse (they don't) or with the keyboard
+(they do). 
+- After appearing, if the window is hidden and shown again with either
+alt+tab or the mouse, the focus rectangles disappears
+- Any key use to navigate the window will show the focus rectangle
+If this checkbox is not selected:
+- The focus rectangle is always visible, doesn't matter whether it was
+activated using the mouse or the keyboard.
+By default it seems the checkbox is selected on both w2k and xp. 
+Themes might modify this, and because that checkbox actually controls
+2 separate settings, an app might modify the keyboard cue behaviour
+without modifying the focus cue behaviour, and the checkbox might not
+reflect that (unknown, but probable :p)
