Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch the latest version of calibre.
2. Click Preferences -> Interface -> Searching and check the Search as type option.
3. Apply the change and go back to the calibre.
4. Type something into the search box and wait for a while.

Actual Result:

The cursor doesn't focus on the search box any longer and calibre changes the focus to the list view.

Expected Result:

The cursor should be still focused on the search box for easy typing.

Customer Impact:

That's quite annoying as you are typing the stuff you are gonna search. Let's see if you are thinking what you are gonna type and stop typing for a while (you haven't finished search phrase yet at this moment). The cursor doesn't focus on the search box any more and you have to click the mouse to re-focus it to search box.


1. Window 7 Ultimate 64bit.
2. calibre version: 2.30 64bit.
