Description of problem:
After some days, metacity dropped the sloppy focus mode and start using
click-to-focus but I never asked for this to change.

Immediatly after metacity changed this behaviour, i ran gnome-window-properties,
but it was still telling me 'on mouse over focus -> on'. I tried to switch to
click-to-focus, close the gnome-window-properties, then to re-run
gnome-window-properties, to go back to sloppy focus but it didnt work.

a 'killall metacity' solved the problem.

It happened 3 times during the last month, and i have not been able to reproduce

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
I have not been able to reproduce it.

It just happened with metacity(0:2.6.3-1).i386 on FC1

I have observed the same and would love to see this fixed. It almost
always bites me by passing keystrokes destined for a terminal window
through to my evolution window instead, with nasty results.

I am also using metacity-2.6.3-1 on FC1.

This is one of those "mysterious cosmic radiation" sort of bugs...
hard to know where to start.
