IE 7 not selecting text in destination field... a preferred standard?

In IE 6, pressing F4 caused the focus to move to the Address field and selected all of the text in the field (so that merely typing a new URL and pressing Enter worked). In IE 7 I notice that the text is no longer selected, and instead, the cursor is positioned at the beginning of the field.
Assuming that this is intentional, does anyone know what influence this comes from? Is it a standard that is preferred or successful in some other context or platform of which I'm unaware? Do you think this new behavior is the correct behavior?
