Dear All,

I am a relative newcomer to xmonad. I have been using it for the last 
couple of months and I enjoy it immensely but there's an issue which 
started to bug me recently. I can't seem to edit some textboxes in Java 
applications. I already have

wmname LG3D

in my xinitrc. I have found and read this thread


and tried the ICCCMFocus trick but no avail. Is this a known bug? Is 
there any fix to it?

The java application I use is geogebra and matlab. geogebra for instance 
does not allow me to modify slider settings that are presented in a 
dialogue window.

Please let me know if there's any possibility of getting this fixed.
