Description dogg360 2012-08-21 21:48:52 UTC
I'm using XInput 2.1/2.2 and the problem is that the delivery of raw events is prevented while the mouse-button is pressed on the client's window.
The server activates an implicit passive grab when I press the button.
The bug here is that the grab window is different to the root window.

Thank you for the patch, Peter!
I can't manage to compile the X server to test it. But I am quite sure the patch does what it should do. So everyone feel free to test it.
