Follow-up Comment #19, bug #53046 (project octave):

I've restored proper operation of the QTableView/QTextEdit stack.  I also know
that the table keyboard navigation is on account of the focus proxy.  Funny
that Qt programmed the proxy that way and that there isn't a signal for when a
QWidget comes into focus.  The fix should be simple, but I need to think a
bit.  Either I have to find a way to pass keyboard events on to the container,
or attach the variable_dock_widgets to the QAPplication::focusChanged()
signal.  I won't have time to look at this until tonight.

JWE, another observance about the QTextEdit view of non-editable variables. 
The QTextEdit should probably be set to non-editable mode.  Right now, a
person can position a cursor in the text window, type, and characters start
appearing.  I don't see a use for that because it's not like such text can be
fed back into the core.  Also, shrinking the QTextEdit view shows that the
text is wrapping rather than putting a scroll bar at the bottom.  I'd think
that non-wrap would be nicer.  My guess is that both these changes should be
simple attribute settings.
