    It's not wrong. What does mousing to another input object do if not "line

    Why not? If you want the RETURN_END_CHANGED behaviour why would you omit it.

    Perhaps they don't support the RETURN_END_CHANGED behaviour at all. I don't
    know. However Motif for example, includes all active obtects in the tab
    ring. Xforms only puts Input objects in the tab ring. This may the the
    source of what I see as an inconsistency.
