Use the TAB key to move focus to a listview

Hi there! I have run into a problem with my Delphi XE application! I have a form where the users can search for records, the result of the search are displayed in a listview. All that works fine, now to the problem! When the user use the TAB key to move around in the form they can't get to the listview even though the TabStop and TabOrder properties are set accordingly! I can sometimes get to the listview by pressing the DOWN key but it appears to be randomly and of course not user friendly!
I want to be able to move around the form by using the TAB key only, first among the items in search part and when I'm on the last search item I want to move focus to the first displayed item in the listview by using the TAB key.
Is this a known bug or have I messed something up in my code?
As I said the properties seems to be OK!
Any helg is greatly appreciated!
