2.7.1_rc2 initially xterm has focus but doesn't receive keys until after mouse click anywhere

Reported by: x11@… Owned by: jeremyhu@…
Priority: Nice to Have Milestone: 2.7.2
Component: xserver Version: dev (master)
Keywords: focus Cc:


upon initially starting xquartz (and starting fullscreen with command-option-a because it didn't enter fullscreen mode automatically), moving the mouse pointer over an xterm (with focus following the pointer), the xterm looks like it has keyboard focus but keys that are typed don't appear in the window until after i have first "clicked the mouse" somewhere. i don't mean clicking in the window. the click can happen in the root window and when i move the pointer back to the xterm any keys typed are received by the xterm. macosx-10.6.8.

this behaviour is similar to what i see in other versions when i leave the preference dialog open, then go back to full screen mode - i have to click somewhere before keys are received by xterm but with this version it happens on startup without the presence of the preferences dialog. i don't know if these are connected in any way.

I can't reproduce this with current bits. I just setup XQuartz to fullscreen mode. I then ran 'xterm' from Terminal.app. XQuartz launched, entered fullscreen mode, and accepted input when I typed.

This does not work right for me using xquartz 2.7.5. When I go back and forth between full screen my xterm loses focus and I have to click the darn thing.
