knoppix 6.7 has many window focus problems

Dear Yagnesh et al,

The mouse is not necessary:  You can "tab" through the windows with alt+tab.

I have been noticing this focus problem with various programs since 6.4.4,
but it may have started before that.

I am finding this especially problematic when I open a new terminal window
and start typing immediately, only to find my keystrokes affecting the
prior window!

Probably confusing for new users (but it doesn't bother me very much) is

Hope this helps.
