TAB doesn't work for controls anymore

This one does the trick! Interesting enough I had the same thing in my tree. I was
just running different apps to see if it still works before submitting the patch.

Only one last question remains "What wParam is doing there? And what that other flag
does?" When that flag is set, edit control does not react to [enter]. At the same time
[enter] is not making it to the default button. So I guess we'll see what's gonna break
after this patch will make it into the CVS tree. :-)
