Description Konstantin Ryabitsev 2004-02-18 15:24:21 UTC
Description of problem:
From time to time I would see an odd behavior in metacity -- a window
would get stuck and never give up mouse focus. This usually happens
when I have just moved that window around either via alt-mouse, or by
grabbing the title bar. The misbehaving window never loses focus and
is present on all virtual desktops (I can still Ctrl-Alt-Arrow, though
Alt-Tab doesn't work) and the only way I can get rid of the problem is
either if I remotely kill the application running in that window, or
kill metacity. After it respawns, everything resumes acting normally.

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

How reproducible:
Every now and again -- happened three times to me over the past week.
There don't seem to be any particular steps, as I have not yet
narrowed down the problem to any specific sequence of events.

I've not seen this happen in a while with newer metacity/gnome. I'm
closing this.
