No, the caret may continue to flash in the text edit box, but of course that isn't helpful if the program is waiting for a GET!

I think you misunderstood my point. The flashing caret should indicate that entry into the 'text box' is accepted, and if it is I would say everything is working correctly. That a different window (which doesn't currently have the input focus) doesn't receive any keyboard input - even if that window is waiting in GET - is as it should be. After all it's entirely possible that two or more windows may be simultaneously running programs which are all waiting in GET; the way Windows (or any other multi-tasking windowing system) has to work is that only one - or none - sees keystrokes.
