A graph of the number of times I've made this mistake over time would look a lot like a flat
line.

The fact that this is such an easy mistake to make at this point in UI evolution ought to
be a red flag for interface designers.

Users need more/better input-focus cues.

With desktop computers' increasingly larger display real estate and processing power, and
hence the increasing number of (visible) open windows, the probability of any given window
having input-focus is trending lower, so the likelihood of inadvertent input placement is
growing.
