I'm a little confused by this question. Clearly:
- Apps don't get PropertyNotify events for windows they haven't
selected for PropertyChangeMask on.
- Apps can select for PropertyNotify events for windows they are
If either wasn't true, the entire session would fall apart, either in
a storm of millions of events, or in a complete non-workingness of
Without digging into the server code, I assume that the question of what
clients get the events gets handled by the normal server mechanisms
for implementing SelectInput.
