Fix longstanding focus bug with mouse (not sloppy) focus mode with popup
2006-10-01 Elijah Newren <newren gmail com> Fix longstanding focus bug with mouse (not sloppy) focus mode with popup override-redirect windows, particularly mozilla and firefox's location bar autocompletion. #357695. * src/display.c (event_callback -- EnterNotify & LeaveNotify events): for mouse focus, defocus the focused window when the mouse enters the desktop window rather than when the mouse leaves the focused window. * doc/how-to-get-focus-right.txt: update for the slightly nuanced definition of mouse focus (people without a DESKTOP window like nautilus get sloppy focus behavior now)
