Description Cor Nouws 2012-03-22 12:48:21 UTC
- In writer choose Tools > Options for Autocorrection
- tab Options
- Now try to navigate to the list with the options with Tab key, Arrow or whatever.
 > Impossible

When the tab (with label Options) has the focus, and you press Tab key once, the focus seems to be lost.
Press Tab once more, and the focus is on the OK button.
Shft-Tab for reversed order gives the same result.

Click in the list with options.
Now you can go up, down, and first, second column with the arrow keys.
Tab out of the list, and you won't get in again.

This is a problem too on the tab page 'Localised options'. 
So it has to do with the container frame, displaying the options.

I first see this in the 3.5.0beta0.

bibisect doesn't contain a version where it works, while it works in 3.4.5
