Bug Description

I faced a very frustrating issue after a big update last week (which also brought me AppCenter).

After updating with `apt-get`, I installed three suggested Drivers using the AppCenter:
- intel-microcode v3.20151106.1
- nvidia-340 v340.102
- nvidia-304 v304.135

Today I booted my PC and noticed that the mouse stops working after a while. A little googling revealed exactly my issue on stackexchange https://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/questions/11029/pantheon-not-responding-to-mouse-clicks

Alt+Tab really helps, but the bar at the top never responds to clicks after the first occasional focus switch.

To summarize:
- When I click to non-focused window behind the focused one, all mouse functions except moving disables
- If I change the focus using Alt+Tab, mouse starts working again
- When I click on a top bar, mouse stops working until Alt+Tab (If there is at least two windows)

UPD: Seems like nvidia-304 causes this issue
My video is GeForce 8600 and the **nvidia-304** causes problems with this card.
Please stop suggesting it (https://i.stack.imgur.com/FShoR.png).
