Are these linked frames people are using?

There was a change to stop people typing into a 2nd (3rd.. etc) frame in
a set of linked frames when the previous frame was not full (as it would
make no sense to do so, and was a source of text update issues. The
focus is moved to the previous frame and the text shows up there.

I see no issue here on RC4 on a Mac with a quick test.. are there more
specific examples rather than "it does not work"?
