i was not able to reproduce this bug. while telepathy-sofiasip was installing in the background i navigated down the list with keyboard and nothing changed after the install

Please put the software center full screen and while going through the list
wait a second or two after the install is finsihed. I just re checked it.

@Fazil: What package can you reproduce with? Maybe it pops up a debconf window for a really short time, and closes it, but that could be enough to loose the focus. I have also tried to reproduce this with the latest daily Software center on Natty (4.1.7~bzr1862~natty1) maximized, but it behaves as is should: the list did not loose focus after installing in background bluefish has finished.
