when losing focus, DataGrids "swallows" events

Let's say I have focus on a WinForms DataGrid.

I move the insertion cursor to the last row (the one with * at the left, which is not yet in the datatable).

Then, I press a button, or move to an EditBox.

Instead of giving up focus and letting me press the button, it just moves one record up, and the button press event doesn't happen.

Bad, bad design. :-( It's the WORST datagrid I ever worked with, and I worked with several grids. :-(

We've spent about four man-months customizing that damned datagrid to get it to do what we want.

Man, I hate that godforsaken thing.  Of course, now it's actually (mostly) working, so I can't say too many things about it--it may decide to stop working all of a sudden!
