Bug#590137: x11: Keyboard disconnected from window.
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
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
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
