New issue 397 by sachdochma: Mouse pointer on border locks focus when using  

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Set focusFollowsMouse = True in your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs.
2. Run: unclutter -root -idle 1 (this hides the mouse pointer after 1  
second of idleness)
3. Open at least two windows on the current workspace.
4. Put your mouse pointer on the border of the focused window.
5. Try to change focus to another window.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The focus changes for an estimated millisecond as expected, then it  
switches back immediately.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad 0.9.1-2+b1 from the Debian repo.

Are you using an xmonad.hs?  Please attach it and the output of "xmonad
Yes, I am, but there is no output.

Please provide any additional information below.
This only happens when the mouse pointer is invisible, so i suppose  
unclutter is doing something stupid and this is not xmonad’s fault? Is it  
possible to move the mouse pointer to the corner of the screen after a  
certain period of mouse idleness?
