Description Tom London 2007-03-11 13:14:27 EDT
Description of problem:
When NM prompts for my keyring passphrase, it looses focus if any other window
pops up. This occurs during 'wireless' boot up almost every time, and I end up
entering parts of my passphase 'in the clear' in some other window.

Any way to get these prompts to maintain input focus?

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Not sure if this related, but I have a different focus problem with
gnome-keyring and NetworkManager, see bug #435596.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2008-03-17 10:20:45 EDT
Recently, a focus problem in metacity was fixed. 

Can you try if metacity-2.22.0-2.fc9  fixes your focus problem ?
Comment 3 Tom London 2008-03-17 10:35:50 EDT
OK.  Will take me a day or two to recreate the scenario.

I'm running compiz.  Will that be a problem?
Comment 4 Tom London 2008-03-23 12:25:08 EDT
Sorry for the delay, but I can no longer reproduce: The new keyring/key
management no longer prompts as frequently as before.
