--- Comment #5 from Heiko Tietze <heiko.tietze at user-prompt.com> ---
I'd say the most important control in a dialog should get the focus. Looking
around for a reference at the Gnome HIG I found the following comment in

/* A far too tricky heuristic for getting the right initial
* focus widget if none was set. What we do is we focus the first
* widget in the tab chain, but if this results in the focus
* ending up on one of the response widgets _other_ than the
* default response, we focus the default response instead.
* Additionally, skip selectable labels when looking for the
* right initial focus widget.

So the right way for LO is to focus the first control that can receive the
focus, as suggested by Eric. And if the dialog is designed well the most
important control is located top left (for LTR layout) and is the first in the
tab sequence, e.g. initialization of the dialog.
