I'd like to raise a minor issue with Synaptic's interface.

When scrolling through the package list pane to install multiple packages, hitting Ctrl+I either marks the package for install or brings up the dependency dialog box, but after these actions, focus has gone from the list and must be explicitly granted by a mouseclick again.

I would consider this a bug, as it introduces unnecessary mouse actions in an otherwise 100% keyboard workflow. It is a minor irritant, but if this could be looked at for a future version, I'd be thankful.
