mouse attention problem
I have a problem with the focus of my mouse. Intermittently (maybe
10% of the time), the mouse focus fails to change to the new window
I'm pointing at. So, I aim at a new window, but my keystrokes come
up in the last window I was typing in. Sometimes it even seems like
I'm trying to type on the desktop, as I get a warning beep at every
keystroke. Oddly, when this is happening I can still paste the mouse
buffer into the desired window.
This problem started a while back, but unfortunately I'm not sure what
I'm running kernel 2.2.14 on an IBM 560Z Thinkpad. I recently updated
to xfree86 3.3.6-11potato, but this didn't fix things. Also, I run
olvwm, but I tried other window managers and that didn't help. And,
I am setup for input area select by pointing and not clicking.
Any ideas? This is driving me crazy!
