I was going through Tom's E4 tutorial [1] and went through some steps using the E4XMI editor. When I hit the class URI [Find Button] on a Part Node, the "Find Contribution Class" dialog shows up. It does the search filtering on keystroke, but with the text box selected the arrow keys don't work to navigate the search results. You have to use tab or the mouse to put focus on the list box in order to use the arrow keys to navigate the list box.

Screen shots and eclipse configuration attached.

If you do the workflow in the Open Type Dialog (Control + Shift + T) you can see that the arrow keys are "forwarded" to the list box.

Minor usability issue. I don't see any existing bug, though I may not be searching successfully. Should I log a bug? [2] Can anybody suggest a component?
