spinbox grabbing the focus (but should not)

In tools - options dialog you normally can navigate through the categories and tab pages using the cursor keys. But if you navigate to Load/Save - General, this breaks, as the AutoRecovery time spinbox gets the focus.

To reproduce:

- open Tools / Options dialog
- navigate to the Load/Save category using cursor keys
- open this category (using cursor right)
- navigate to General (using cursor down)

-> you cannot simply navigate to VBA properties, instead you will decrease the time for AutoRecovery intervall

simple solution: the spin box should not grab the focus


note: this happens only the first time after the options dialog was opened. If you navigate to another page (using the mouse) and then go back to Load/Save - General all is fine. 


adding Christoph in case UX approval is needed

grabbing this one, as it is an easy hack (so I'll try to submit my first fix to LibO :) )

just for UX: 
what happens here is that the spin fields grabs the focus ech time the "Save AutoRecovery" checkbox gets enabled.
Imho this is nonsense, as it has no effect when usinge the mouse. But when using keyboard, you normaly expect to "toggle" the checkbox with the space bar - but this behaviour is now broken.

Hi André, thanks for CC. I agree, the spin box shouldn't grab the focus ... instead, if the user highlighted "General" and presses tab, then the leftmost option should get the focus.

And I should read the full bug report, sorry! Yes, toggling the "Save AutoRecovery" checkbox shouldn't move the focus to the spin field.

RC2 is bit by bit identical with release version, so separate items in the version picker are useless. Changes have been discussed with Michael Meeks.
