When you press the '+' sign the focus is not taken to the box where you're supposed to start typing and the flashing cursor doesn't appear until you have actually typed something. It would be more intuitive if the cursor was flashing immediately after pressing '+'.
Incidentally, if you press '+', type one letter, and then press backspace you still have the flashing cursor...this situation gives a view of how I think it should look at the beginning.
