Public bug reported:

1) Open "Add widgets" dialogue e.g. for your panel or desktop
2) Type the full name of a widget e.g. "system tray"
 -> The dialogue will show the widget below in a list of search results.  This bug will only happen if you have 1 search result only.

3) Press tab

 -> Focus will allegedly switch to the the list of search results.  But
the result is not visibly highlighted.  In fact, the result is not
selected in any sense.  Pressing "up" or "down" or "enter" doesn't help.

4) Press tab two more times, and you'll see the focus shift to the "add widget" button.
5) Press enter
 -> nothing happens.  The dialogue didn't let you select the widget, so you can't add it.
