I had a psaux mouse mouse until something on the motherboard died, now
it's running as USB mouse (it's one of those mice that can run with a
USB2psaux plug. But no matter if it's psaux or usb, the focus-grabbing
behaveour was there with both.

I'm running a standard psaux keyboard.

I'm running mostly testing. X and KDE are both mostly the same in
testing and unstable mind you.

Kernel 2.4.22.

I'm have been using the closed source nvidia driver for ever [1]. I am
sporadically updating that one.

But mind you - the focus and mouse grabbing isn't happening for most of
the apps, only with a few *specific* ones. OOo and Acroread are the ones I
know of.

Is a dignosis possible doc?

[1] Having a computer with an nvidia card sucks because the one driver
    from X was sucking badly (sloooooooooow) last time I looked and using
    the closed source is a real waste of time wrt to upgrading the
    kernel... sigh. Don't buy hardware that doesn't have quality *open
    source* drivers... :-(
