Fix metadata import quirk

I often import metadata via the Item Description window from another dataset especially if I am doing similar or repetitive processing. I have got to the Item Description window from the Catalog window.

When the import process has completed the Item Description window always hangs for a few seconds and resets itself as the focus has changed in the Catalog window to the parent workspace/feature dataset. This is a really irritating behaviour as I want to be looking at the metadata of the dataset I have just updated not its workspace.

The Item Description can be slow to update when I click back on the dataset I have just updated with the import tool.

It would be really good if this behaviour is changed so that focus remains on the dataset you are looking at and not its parent workspace.

This behaviour also occurs in ArcCatalog.
