I've had this problem for a long while...

First the computer goes into screensaver. Then when it resumes the currently focused window cannot receive keyboard events of any kind until focus is lost and then gained again.

Anyone seen something like this/knows why it happens?

As a side note, I always password lock the computer when going into screensaver mode.

Do you use xneur? If yes, purge it and check the bug. – Extender Oct 25 '10 at 13:56
@Extender: What is xneur? (I guessing no) – Dmitriy Likhten Oct 25 '10 at 21:04

It`s a famous bug on launchpad. It only remains to wait for the decision :(

what makes it famous? Also, can you please incorporate the link into your answer? It is appropriate to edit the answer with more info, as your answer becomes the "definitive" answer vs having to plow through comments. – Dmitriy Likhten Oct 18 '10 at 17:49
