Hi Eric,

   The Model Panel Focus button does seem to be broken.

   The case I tested was 3F5P with just chain A and ligand deleted as 
one model, and 3F5P just chain A with non-ligand deleted -- two models. 
  Highlighting just the ligand model in Model Panel and pressing Focus 
in the Model Panel and then rotating soon sends the ligand out of view. 
  The command "focus #1" (model 1 is the ligand) works correctly.
