In the latest loadup':'
If you run TEDIT or CHAT and the TTY switches to that process, then you can''t get the TTY switched back to the top-level window by clicking in the Top-level window.  You have to quit Chat or Tedit to get it to go back to there.'
However':  You can move the tty back and forth between the Chat and Tedit by mouseclicks.'

More information':'
My guess is that CHAT is the offender.  Somehow the CHAT process seems to be associated with the top-level tty window.  If you click in the top-level window, it''s the chat  process that gets woken up with the caret flashing.'
If you don''t have Chat going, then you can click back and forth between a Tedit window and the top-lvel window without any trouble.'
