Description of problem:
I cannot type into the command line applet in the gnome panels.  I
have my desktop set to pointer focus (which seems to be the old
'sloppy focus').  When I move the mouse into the command line applet
to type a command, the focus remains with the last application window
the cusor was in and the keystrokes are reported to that application.

Clicking in the command applet does NOT help.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set focus to pointer (Preferences | Window | click select when
mouse moves over)
2. Add command line applet to panel (right click in panel | Add to
Panel | Utility | Command Line)
3. Move mouse to applet and type something.

Actual Results:  Key strokes are 'typed' into the last application
window the cursor was in (the window with the highlighted border).

Expected Results:  The keystrokes should be typed into the command
line applet.

Additional info:

I'm 'synced' with the rawhide directory.

I'm pretty sure this got fixed since - I believe it was a metacity bug.
