[Bug 806255] Re: Unity/compiz intercepts keystrokes from grabbed windows.


FYI, the root cause of this bug appears to be because compiz uses
XkbStateNotify, which is part of the X Keyboard Extension. Using this
extension has the unfortunate side-effect (by design) of ignoring grabs
held by other clients and still giving you key events even when you
shouldn't be receiving them. This is documented is the spec:

"As with all Xkb events, XkbStateNotify events are reported to all interested clients without regard to the current keyboard input focus or grab state."

You received this bug notification because you are a member of compiz
