FS#1235 - Remove focus from command line after command execution

I find it a bit annoying that after executing a command by issuing some points in the command line, the command line retains the focus.

This means an extra Escape key press, and sometimes my hotkeys are just sent in plain text to the command line if I forget to escape.

Something like this:

- hotkey: ss (stretch)
- click for first point
- click for second point
- click for reference
- hotkey: eh (restrict horizontal)
- spacebar
- enter distance by hand
- return (execute)

At this point, if I want to repeat another “stretch” command, I have to disable the horizontal restriction by hand (en), and start again.

The problem is that if I forget to press the Escape key, my “en” command is issued in the command line, and I keep looking at the screen because the hotkey was not issued.

What would be desirable IMHO after a command execution would be to reset any restrictions applied and remove focus from command line.

Note: This would interrupt the workflow for users who wish to enter multiple commands or coordinates immediately after each other.
