Description of problem:
I use mouse-focus (focuses window on mouse enter/exit) in Sawfish, the default
WM in Skipjack. When I use Nautilus, if I exit the window with my mouse,
Nautilus loses focus, as expected, but if I re-enter the window, it does not
re-gain focus. I am unable to perform any keyboard operations unless I click on
Nautilus in the tasklist to restore focus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nautilus-1.0.6-12, the version of nautilus that resides on a Skipjack beta2
system after all updates have been applied.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. GNOME->Programs->Settings->Sawfish Wi..->Focus Behavior, choose "enter-exit"
2. Open Nautilus.
3. Move your mouse so that Nautilus loses focus, or if you chose not to focus
new windows automatically, skip to step 3.
4. Move your mouse to give Nautilus focus again - it doesn't work.
Actual Results: Nautilus cannot be influenced by keyboard input until you click
on it in the tasklist.
Expected Results: Nautilus should receive focus and take keyboard input, just
like every other application.
Additional info: None
