Environment: Windows 2000 Pro, Access 2000 (either runtime or "Straight")

There is an unbound form with with an unbound dropdown list, whose value is cleared
when the focus is lost, then regained. This only happens on some computers. Several
have been completely reinstalled, OS and all.

Any idea why?
