Hi David,

I have two screens using Xinerama, since the second screen is the
output adapter on my laptop I can't really turn it off so I can't
speak for a single headed environment.

I don't think a screenshot would help much, frequently I "see" the
previous tab, but my input is going to the "active" tab.  I have to
cycle the tabs to get things back the way they should be.

Any debug output etc I can provide ??
