Description Chris Ricker 2004-05-18 11:03:41 EDT
After running s-c-desktop, I see on stdout:

Window manager warning: Working around an application which called
XSetInputFocus (None) or with RevertToNone instead of
RevertToPointerRoot, this is a minor bug in some application.

This is 1.0.14-1
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2004-06-15 11:03:12 EDT
Hmm...I don't see this on my test machines.  What version of metacity
are you running?

Havoc, what does this message mean?  As far as I know,
system-config-display isn't doing anything besides just forking
metacity to provide some window management functions.
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2004-06-15 11:07:18 EDT
that was stock FC2, so it should be metacity-2.8.1-2
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2004-06-15 16:03:07 EDT
Message means what it says - some app called XSetInputFocus(None) or
with RevertToNone. gdk_window_focus (NULL) may do this, I'm not sure.

Metacity doesn't know which app did it though, so can't print out the

It's possible this could be a metacity bug/confusion, but probably not

Anyway, the bug is minor in most cases. Basically if the focus ends up
set to None then you can't use your keyboard anymore (this is major),
but it ends up minor since metacity moves the focus back somewhere.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2004-06-23 16:16:29 EDT
Since I'm unable to reproduce this on my test machines, I'm going to
assume that some other application triggered this message from
metacity.  Closing as 'worksforme'
