Lowering windows with middle-click loses window focus under certain circumsta...


Description nyu2 2007-01-21 01:22:15 CET
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060601 Firefox/ (Ubuntu-edgy)
Build Identifier: 

When I turn on 'focus follows mouse', then push a window down with a middle-click on the left frame of a window, and the window is on the extreme left edge of the screen, that window loses focus, and no other window gains focus.  (i.e. if my mouse y pos = 0.)  If my mouse is not on the leftmost pixel of the screen, then it doesn't lose focus, it just gets pushed underneath any other windows.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a few windows.
2. Move one to the leftmost edge of the screen.
3. Middle-click it to push it down.  
3a. If the mouse is at y=0, then the window loses focus.
3b. If the mouse is at y>0, the window retains focus.

Expected Results:  
I would expect the window to retain focus, even if I click on the frame with y=0.

Do you still get that behavior with the final release? It seems I cannot reproduce the problem here.

I have had this problem since ever, and with 4.4.1 it is still there.
ymouse = 0 and middle click does not gives the focus to the right window.

Still cannot reproduce the problem. Could you try do take a screencast showing the bad behavior? Maybe I'm misunderstanding something...
Comment 4 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2007-04-22 19:17:44 CEST
Also, can you run "xlsclients" and post the result?
Comment 5 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2007-04-22 19:32:39 CEST
Ok, never mind, seems I can reproduce it. 
Comment 6 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2007-04-22 21:05:45 CEST
Ok, it's fixed in SVN now. Rev. 25627.
