Should not select all the text when the window gets focus

When working with two windows (JOSM and another program, for example) and using a window manager where the focus is controlled by the mouse, I see one annoying behavior.

The attached video can give a better idea of this:

  • I open the properties window to add a new key/value and start to type the value.
  • Move the mouse outside JOSM (to the PDF file).
  • Get the mouse back to JOSM and all the text inside the value is selected.
  • I then have to press End or click at the end to start typing again (otherwise I lose what I have already entered on the text box).

It shouldn't select all the text when JOSM get the focus. It should just stay where the cursor was originally.
