           Summary: Keyboard focus lost after switching to another app and
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.33
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: waldner+bugs.winehq.org at waldner.priv.at


starting with wine 1.1.28 (.deb, via http://www.winehq.org/download/deblenny ),
whenever I switch focus away from a fullscreen app in wine (by changing to
another virtual desktop), I can't get the keyboard focus back to wine - mouse
works fine, though. The typed characters appear in the terminal where I started
wine instead. The appearance is that wine somehow prevents the window manager
from sending the focus to wine.

I found a couple bugs to that effect, all duplicated to 19822 (tagged FIXED for
1.1.29) or 19874 (tagged CLOSED WORKSFORME). However, the bug still appears in

Tested with (originally noticed when running World of Warcraft):
- rm -rv ~/.wine
- install the to-be-tested wine
- run winecfg, say "no" to gecko download
- set "emulate a virtual desktop", size 2048x1152 (my native screen resolution)
- ok
- re-run winecfg
- go to "Libraries", type a couple characters in the "new override" field
- switch virtual desktop, type a couple characters in an xterm there
- switch virtual desktop back to wine

The various other options under "Graphics" in winecfg don't make any difference
regarding this.

Tested with wine 1.1.28, 1.1.29, 1.1.30 and now 1.1.33. Have NOT tested 1.1.31
and 1.1.32.
This was not a problem with wine from 0.95 up to incl. 1.1.27.

Environment: Debian 5.0.3 (Lenny) i386, up-to-date, Enlightenment as window
manager (3x3 virtual desktops).
