Description Havoc Pennington 2001-08-29 15:34:38 EDT
For the next release, Sawfish should be configured so that the focus click
is "eaten" instead of going through to the application. Then you can focus
apps without having to microtarget the window border.

On the other hand, on the GNOME bugzilla we have people complaining about them
unknowingly having pass-through-click set to false and buttons in unfocused
appliactions not working.

What is the problem, really?  I.e. which applications do you need to micro-target?

What does Windows do?  I think this is the really important question.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2001-12-17 20:55:04 EST
Windows does pass through, Mac does not.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-12-17 21:19:33 EST
You're probably right though:
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-03-01 10:47:25 EST
Experiment with Metacity demonstrated that pass through is required unless you
are "application-based"
