I use the 'sloppy' window focus mode aka 'focus follows mouse'.
I have recently noticed that sometimes the focus gets 'stuck' on the last window when I cross monitors. That is, the focus stops following the mouse sometimes when I cross the monitor boundary, leaving whatever was the last focused window still focus, even though the mouse is somewhere else. Moving the mouse to any other window and back fixes it. Clicking usually does NOT force focus to the current window (which really surprises me every time) even though I have click to raise turned on.
This was not the case when I first upgraded to 12.04 but I don't know when it began. It is so intermittent that I can't ever produce it on demand but it happens to me 5-10 times a day when connected to an external monitor.
I wanted to ask here first to see if anyone knew of a solution or an existing bug (I can't find one) before I post a bug report.
