The following test cases require the user to tap the screen before the focus rect appears by way of the trackball. In some cases, if I use a tap to get to the test, the track ball works, but if I use the trackball to to make the selection, the resulting test wil not show the focus rect.

trackball to make selection in list>trackball fails in test
finger tap in list>trackball works. That make any sense? :-P

    (from [5949bc7265e449dd0ae6e62b4b95b5ba77177f1c]) [#1748 state:fixed-in-qa] Code cleanup to not request getLayout() more than once. Fixed trackball focus. Since Android has the concept of touchable focus, your action on a preceding window in KS has an effect on the next window. For example, if you touch select a test, trackball focus will work on the next window. This seemed to be working before. If you trackball/dpad select, then it failed to let you use the trackball/dpad on the next activity. After the fix you should notice distinct behaviors. If you touch select and go to the next test, you will not see a focused item in most cases. If you trackball/dpad select then you will see a control with focus on the next Activity. http://github.com/appcelerator/titanium_mobile/commit/5949bc7265e449dd0ae6e62b4b95b5ba77177f1c"> http://github.com/appcelerator/titanium_mobile/commit/5949bc7265e44...

    These still fail (in that trackball does not give focus, wether its touch or trackball that invokes the window):

    Base UI> window (Stand Alone)> Open (plain)
    Base UI> window (Stand Alone)>Open (Nav Bar COvered)
    Base UI> window (Stand Alone)>Open (Fullscreen)
