VO cursor and browser focus

Hello,

In working with some devs, we found (what I believe to be) an inconsistency
with the tracking of the VoiceOver cursor versus the Safari browser focus.
Here's a sample page (JSFiddle):
https://jsfiddle.net/pt80bp8w/11/

In the results pane, there are several input text fields. When running
VoiceOver, if you activate the checkbox Select Option using the space bar,
then browser and VO focus shifts to the Target Name 1 input field. All is
well.

If you activate the checkbox Select Option using Control+Option+space bar,
then the browser focus shifts to the Target Name 1 input field, but the
VoiceOver cursor remains at the checkbox. Not so great.

I already reviewed the VoiceOver utility settings and everything is
checked. Running VO on 10.10 (Yosemite) and updated Safari.

Is this a known issue with VoiceOver+Safari?

Take care,
Sean
