Package: kwin
Version: 4:3.5.0-4
Severity: normal

kwin (at least in default debian config) puts windows with
WM_TRANSIENT_FOR property behind that window, making them completely

For example, when ctrl-button3 clicking into a rxvt-unicode window the
window loses focus and nothing seems to happen. When one clicks near the
border you can see that the menu opens _behind_ the terminal window, with
focus correctly set to it.

While this is a correct implementation of the EWMH and ICCCM, which says:

      The WM_TRANSIENT_FOR property contains the ID of another top-level
      window. The implication is that this window is a pop-up on
      behalf of the named window, and window managers may decide not
      to decorate transient windows or may treat them differently in
      other ways. In particular, window managers should present newly
      mapped WM_TRANSIENT_FOR windows without requiring any user
      interaction, even if mapping top-level windows normally does require
      interaction. Dialogue boxes, for example, are an example of windows
      that should have WM_TRANSIENT_FOR set.

it is extremely poor behaviour, and makes using menus with apps that only
set WM_TRANSIENT_FOR impossible.

No info provided - closing.

How can I do for inserting in the AT X driver of the button?

First you neither can forward to a RO memory address, nor should ever telnet 
on a monitor for pinging a program on the monitor over the Ultra ADSL
