[Bug 747240] [NEW] Focus problem after screen lock


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Steps to reproduce :
- have compiz enabled (by default in Ubuntu), with default options
- go to Screensaver preferences, check "Lock screen when screensaver is active", and select "1 minute" (if you don't want to wait too long)
- open Firefox using the icon in the top gnome-panel
- wait 1 minute (until the screen is locked) (don't lock it manually, the bug is not reproducible that way)
- once the screen is locked, type your password to unlock it (don't use your mouse at all)
- now (once the screen is unlocked), move your mouse : the focus changes when you put the mouse over a window, without clicking (it should not do that)
- it is especially annoying here : type something in firefox address bar and move the mouse on the top gnome-panel ; you cannot type the adress anymore, because gnome-panel is active, not firefox !

I have this bug for years, but today I found a workaround :
- open ccsm
- in General Options > Focus & Raise Behaviour
- Focus Prevention Windows contains "!(class=Polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1)" --> clear it
- now it works correctly

This text input option should be empty by default.
