If it were me, I would try something like clicking on the region you want right before the checkpoint.  See if that changes the focus to the correct place.

Test Complete has to be able to "see" the screen you are testing.  Was that screen open when the test failed?

Check Task Manager and make sure that there's not a second instance of that screen open.
