What you're seeing is the focus indicator, which appears around most
controls when they are focused, not just applets.  It's rather important
to have it if you're a keyboard user, otherwise you don't know which
applet your keyboard input is going to end up in.  It's also an
accessibility requirement.

IIRC you can change the colour/pattern of the focus indicator in the
gtkrc file, if it's annoying you all that much...
