User taps SMS App and the New Message icon to create a new message. User immediately notices no blinking cursor in the To: field. This is not the behavior of Buri 2.0 or Flame 1.4 where the blinking cursor is immediate. When the cursor appears, it is parallel with the “e” from New message above. The enter key relocates the cursor parallel to the “N” from New message above. 

Repro Steps: 
1) Update a Tarako to BuildID: 20140602014001
2) Tap SMS App and New Message icon (pencil on paper image, upper right)
3) Tap in To: field, observe device behavior 

There is no blinking cursor. When user taps within To: field, blinking cursor appears parallel to the 'e' from New Message above. However, when user taps enter key, blinking cursor moves parallel to the 'N' from New Message above. 

Blinking cursor from onset. When user taps within To; field, blinking cursor appears parallel to the 'N' from New Message above.

The focus isn't on the To field for 1.3; I thought there was a bug on the autofocus on the to field already... I can't seem to find it.
There is a bug Naoki, because we fixed it in 1.4 ;)
-> bug 962328

About the cursor placement issue, I'd like to know if this is fixed on master now that the visual refresh landed.
