    initial v1  
    44I've looked at the source code for sawfish and fvwm ({{{setup_wm_hints}}}) and both only set the input mode after reading the wmhints when they capture the window, it does not seem possible to change the input attribute afterwards.
    55
    6 So r2909 does something similar: we only set the input_field once (whenever the application sets the {{{InputHint}}} mask on wmhints), and we don't allow this value to change thereafter.
     6So r2910 does something similar: we only set the input_field once (whenever the application sets the {{{InputHint}}} mask on wmhints), and we don't allow this value to change thereafter.
    77I don't like this since the spec does not say anything about restricting the number of times one can call [http://www.tronche.com/gui/x/xlib/ICC/client-to-window-manager/XSetWMHints.html XSetWMHints] or why we should discard certain attributes. But back in the real world, it looks like we need this, and I can't imagine why an application would want to change this value through the lifetime of a window.
