Remove the focus patch applied to 2.6.3-2
(debian/patches/001_metacity-focus.patch) to revert to the previous
behaviour that means you have to Alt+Click to focus panel applets.

Then, if you like, download
<ftp://ftp.netsplit.com/pub/mendacity/mendacity-2.6.3-focus-panel-and-desktop.patch.gz>, uncompress it and place it in debian/patches instead.  This makes the panel get keyboard focus when you just point at it, fixing the problem.

(Note that I request that packages containing any 'mendacity' patches do
not get called "metacity" until the patches are applied upstream, if
that ever happens.)

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
