Minor annoyance (2 posts)

I opend the 4.0b5 version of fetch, and immediately was presented with the New Connection dialog. Since this was the first time I opened the program, ftp.dartmouth.edu was the default server.
The cursor was defaulted to the User ID field, and since I did not want to connect to Dartmouth, I tried typing SHIFTB to get to the Host field. Instead of going to the host field though, the cursor jumped to the Try To Connect __ Times field.
Upon playing around with the tabbing sequence a few times, it seems to be a little disorganized. If I TAB all the way through all the fields, arriving back at the User ID field, I can then SHIFTB back to the Host field. SHIFTB from the password field always jumps to the Try To Connect __ Times field. SHIFTB from the Initial Directory field always goes to the User ID field, unless you entered the Initial Directory field by SHIFTBing from the Non-Standard Port Number field, in which case SHIFTB will not let you leave the Initial Directory field.
There are a few other peculiarities with the tabbing. I just wanted to report this, as it caused me to have to try several times to get a connection because I wasn't paying attention to where the cursor was :-)

Thanks for the feedback -- tabbing is clearly not working right. I hope to fix it before the final release.
