SPS 2003: "can't move focus to the control" error

Read the following article if you are receiving the "can't move focus to the control" javascript error:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=831107&FR=1

You get this error when you add a new required column in your document library and try to approve an old document that already existed there before the new column was added. I noticed this problem today when i was experimenting with an automated system. The application tried to upload the document to the library and succeeded but when i went to the library and tried to approve it, i got the javascript error. The solution is to edit the document properties, fill in the required field and then approve it.
