I have an annoying problem in which the choose folder dialog can loose focus. This happens frequently and is very annoying to the end user as they have to click and type very very fast as the delay before loosing focus is 0.5 s.

This seems to be an XP only problem. Here are the steps to reproduce (copied from previous posts).

when you get to the SdAskDestPath click on the browse button.
Choose Folder dialog will be displayed.
type "c" without a colon or slash.
you will be prompted that its an invalid path. click ok on the prompt.
then try to type something long like "c:\program files\software folder". as you are typing this, the dialog will lose focus and you won't be able to finish typing the path.
