Description of problem:
in "high load" circumstances (lots of windows) The infrequently might
lose a key up event in the case where more keypress events occur
I have added a timestamp to the verbose output of metacity (just the
seconds) and logged sessions where things go wrong.
The keybind to change desktop, changing through desktops and hitting
"return" and it somehow loses the return, (event is not passed through
to the active window) until you re-press the key which lost the key_up
event. This happens mostly when changing desktops, but also when using
Attaching logfiles, first one cut down, second one of a complete session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a load of windows (some ... 40 or so? )
2. bind buttons directly to "go to desktop #" (not
ctrl+shift+left/Right) (3x3 desktops, mapped to numpad)
3. Change desktop a few times
4. Realize keypressess arent registered to windows.

this is a harder log to parse as it includes normal desktop work.
