trying to set the focus values in live doesn't change anything, it is completely

gconftool-2 -s '/apps/metacity/general/focus_mode' --type string mouse
gconftool-2 -s '/apps/metacity/general/focus_mode' --type string sloppy

doesn't make the desktop change it's behaviour, you still have to log out and go
back to go back to normal.

Same thing happens if you launch XEmacs (21.4.19) which I installed via yum. 
Not sure if xemacs runs k3b or not.

I've also installed all updates as of today (4/7/2006).

Fedora Core 5 is no longer maintained. Is this bug still present in Fedora 7 or
Fedora 8?
