I am not quite sure what you mean by clicking on the outline of a
cell.  There is a glitch/bug that shows up sometimes where a cell will
remains selected (grey outline) but the editor will lose keyboard
focus.  On the Mac this shows up when the cell gets a blue highlight
outline.  I consider this to be a bug and am in the process of
tracking it down.  Code cells should never lose keyboard focus while
the grey box is present.  Is this what you are talking about?
