Hi all,
I am currently having a problem with XMonad correctly switching focus from
the Speedbar ( in File mode ) and the editing window. Choosing a file in the
Speedbar loads that file into the editing window but XMonad's focus stays in
the speedbar. Surprisingly I can edit and navigate the file just fine in the
editing window ( meaning all my keypress events are caught by the editing
window ), but XMonad still thinks that the Speedbar is the master window. If
I now switch layouts the Speedbar truly becomes the master window, also the
red border stays with the Speedbar while I am typing in the editing window.
I then have to explicitly move focus ( using Alt-j etc ) to the editing

In Buffer Mode, selecting a buffer in the Speedbar loads it in the editing
window, but focus and keypress events correctly stay in the Speedbar window.
