Re: [Sawfish] strange focus/raising bug

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I'm seeing the same here on latest HEAD. Though I can't reliable
reproduce the problem, it only happens for me some times. Looks like
some sort of race condition to me between the code about raising the
window and the code lowering it, but I would not know how to fix it.
