I finally found a way to reproduce the strange focus issues I have with
e17. Here it goes (I use Eterm as an example, but my problem often
occurs with xmessage):
- start with some empty desktop, launch an Eterm
- from there, lauch Eterm &
- not moving the mouse, type Eterm and return
- ctrl-c (killing Eterm n. 3)
=> Eterm n. 2 now has the focus, even though the mouse is still on Eterm
Stacking does not seem to change anything.
