Description of problem:
Passive button grabs can get stuck, resulting in an unresponsive desktop. One reproducer is described below, there are likely other applications that trigger the same behaviour.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install the mwm window manager and install the $HOME/.mwmrc attached. Start up a plain X server, mwm and two xterms. Then hit Alt+mouse button1 over one of the terminals. The mouse is now unresponsive.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start a plain X server
2. start mpwm
3. start two xterms
4. press Alt+Button1
5. desktop is unresponsive
Seems to be caused by invalid ButtonPress event delivery when a passive grab without the ButtonPress mask is activated.
