             Bug #: 45846
           Summary: widget grabs keyboard focus on mouse over, seems
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Spice
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: gtk-client

spice gtk widget grabs keyboard focus on mouse over, which to me seems
unintuitive. if I have a spice widget open half behind my terminal, and my
mouse strays over it, alt-tab meant for the host gets eaten by the widget.

IMO just grabbing mouse on focus in should be sufficient (code already does
that, but also does the mouse over bit).

gtk-vnc actually has the same behavior but provides an API for disabling
(set_keyboard_grab in the python bindings). However vinagre at least just sets
that to True, so maybe there is some reason for this behavior that I'm missing.
