xfce on openSUSE 12.2 with all
updates behaves strange: the mouse no longer works reliably. I'm not
aware of X configuartion changes that I may have made at that time.
If it happens, moving the mouse pointer with the mouse still work, but
click events no longer reach the application: If I click an inactive tab
in FF, it does not activate that tab; clicking any ok button also fails
(no matter whether that's in a gtk or qt application); and 'xev' does
not seem to see an event. Right and middle clicks are also dead.
Often the Alt-Tab keycombo to switch between
applications is also defunct.
Often I can trigger this behavior, if I dupple-click a word for
selection in my xterm.
If I click something in emacs, I see on the console:
(emacs:3783): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_window_get_events: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
(emacs:3783): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
(emacs:3783): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
As a temporary workaround it mostly helps to switch to a different
virtual desktop with Control-Alt-Rightarrow and immediately come back
with C-A-Leftarrow. Or I must enter 'xfwm4 --replace &'...
