xpra-controlled windows won't give up focus

Reported by: Thomas Esposito Owned by: Thomas Esposito

I am running the Xpra 2.1 client on Windows 10.

Sometimes, after I have clicked on the taskbar icon in order to bring another application window into focus (either a native Windows application or another xpra X application window), the current xpra X application remains on top and retains focus. The only way I can get to my other application is to minimize the offending xpra X application window. The offending application seems to be gnome-terminal more often than not.

I'm not sure if this a client or server issue, but for what it's worth, I'm running xpra server version 1.0.6 on RHEL6.6.

Please try to narrow it down by running a different client OS (ie: Linux).
When the problem occurs, try to capture the client output with the debug flag "-d focus", or maybe even "-d focus,win32".
Having minimal reproducible steps would help me fix this.
