How do I tab through buttons?

If I use the tab key it will change the selection (blue background glow) however if I press enter, it will always choose the default option.

See the screenshots for what I mean:

Enter activates default button, space activates selected button. –  Peter Štibraný Nov 16 '11 at 8:42

You need to press the space bar whilst on the highlighted button (the one with the halo around it). If you press enter, it will always select the "default" option.
