Bug#590137: x11: Keyboard disconnected from window.

Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.5+6
Severity: important
File: x11

Keyboard focus is disconnected from the active window in a number of
circumstances.  The easiest way to recreate the problem is by opening
gnome-terminal, opening a second tab then typing exit.  You will not be able
to type into the window in the remaining tab.  Right-clicking, then
left-clicking returns the keyboard focus to the window.

It doesn't appear to be a desktop issue, as I can recreate it both in fluxbox
and gnome.  The problem renders eclipse nearly unusable, as the keyboard
focus is taken away from the editor every time an auto-completion or hover
information window is shown (and the same trick needed to return it).

I usually use click-to focus, but I've also tried different focus models with
the same behavior.

I'm sorry if this isn't the right package to file this against, but it's
the only common factor that I can see in a problem which spans desktops and
