This is quite annoying (especially so since I usually scroll using the
cursor keys, not a pointing device). I consider it a bug, but haven't
bothered reporting it yet since there were more important ones (not
working at all on recent distros for a start).

Like Daniel I think that all activities (or all applications for that
matter - I have the same problem with non-Sugar applications as well)
should start with a sensible focus selected.

We should check where focus gets assigned by default in activities that
don't set it explicitly. Depending on the outcome (e.g. if it's in the
tool bar by default), setting the focus in
sugar.activity.activity.Activity.set_canvas() might be a good idea.
