Description (last modified by bill)

For ComboBox, TimeTextBox, TAB will close the drop down menu and move focus to next tab stop. But for dijit.form.Select, TAB only closes the drop down menu, the focus remains on the widget...

Yes, focus is moved to the Select. This is the expected behavior for any popups where focus goes to the popup, for example a ColorPalette from a DropDownButton in a Toolbar.

I agree it would be a nicer user experience if focus went to the next control, but that's difficult/expensive to compute as you need to scan the whole page for all available focusable node, sort by tabindex, etc. The tabOrder() method in dijit/tests/helpers.js is a good start.
