Yes, Klipper is behaving quite strangely here as well - sometimes when I
click on it it will sometimes block the mouse for an unforseable time. I
usualy press CTRL-ALT and the mouse is miraculously released.

But KDE (or X?) in general, since 3.2 or something seems to handle the
mouse in a more painful way then before. Some apps, like acroread,
openoffice and others have the habbit of grabbing the mouse and the focus
until they're started. This is a quite "new" and very annoying "feature"
I'm seeing - I was not seeing this under X a few years ago. Usually I
press CTRL-Fx to change to a different virtual workspace and back and the
mouse is released.
