Yes, I have unfortunately found this problem too.
I have not looked into it for a while, but this may happen when you are
inputting text in a textbox.
This makes it hard keeping timers in sync and such.
As for a work around, I think you are correct in that writing your own list
class may be the only choice.

Subject: list boxes, soft keys, and the N503iS
Date: Thu, 29 Nov 2001 19:11:13 -0800
I just started experimenting writing iapplis for my N503iS. I noticed that
when I create a numbered list box and the list box is selected, the panel
which contains the list box is no longer capable of receiving soft key
events. When I say that the list box is selected, I mean that I've pressed
the select button which causes the list to enter the mode where the first
item in the list is highlited and I can scroll up and down the list using
the arrow keys.
This behavior seem strange to me. I would expect that the soft keys would
always work, regardless of the state of the UI components contained in the
I'm curious to know if others have been bothered by this behavior and
whether someone has a workaround other than rolling one's own list class.
