On the first click, no cursor appears, although the field is editable

Description of Problem:

on any text-values (string, int, float, etc..)  I have to click a second time
on the values for the blinking cursor to appear, which is inconsistent with the
NET way, which requires only a single click on the value field, and leads to a
tendency to click a lot to be sure it's being edited.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. In a propertygrid, click on any textbox-like editable field.
2. The text will get selected, but the cursor will not appear. The text will be
editable, but the missing cursor causes a need to try and click again, at which
point it finally decides to add the cursor. It makes it difficult to be sure
which point in the text is editable at any time

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

How often does this happen? 


Additional Information:

I have attached a screenshot to indicate what is happening, on the fielname
field. On the first click to select the Filename griditem, the blinking text
caret should appear, as is consistent with .NET behaviour and general UI
practice, but it is not, as can be seen in the first screenshot. The text
however is editable at this point, although it is not clear from what's
happening on screen that this is the case. (it is not a timing issue with the
screenshot and the blinking cursor, the caret is missing).

It looks like the propertygrid is using a textbox and moving it over the field
to perform the editing function, but is missing the appropriate "Focus" command
to set the Caret.
