Hello, Tomas. The fix for the stuck menus is not Ctrl-Alt, it is only Alt. I
have completely isolated. And it is *irritating*. A lot.
I have a lot of these problems with Klipper and the main menu, and I remember
a couple with OO.org, and another couple with Firefox.
I do not know if the last Alt-Tab fix in XFree4.3 (version 4.3.0.dfsg1-6)
will fix this:
* Grab from XFree86 CVS (2003-08-22) a fix for the problem some window
managers have seeing Alt key release events (commonly known as the
"Alt-Tab problem"). (Closes: #254973)
I upgraded my laptop yesterday, but I have not run XFree86 since that, so I
do not know if it is fixed.
I'm packing your extra pair of shoes and your ANGRY eyes!
