This is not something we can fix ourselves. I'm not sure the spec specifies the order of operations for setting the focus element and firing the focus event.

I've opened an issue on Chrome here. Let's see what they say on the specified behavior.

Either way, this is a cantfix. The workaround for now is to match in a setTimeout call, which works in all browsers.
