Bug Description

alt-left cursor is commonly used to go back in a browser, but when running under xmir it appears to take focus away from the screen as a whole so it appears to be frozen. Alt+f4 unfreezes and closes the browser, there might be another way to get out of it.

This is a symptom of the input events being passed to the console - i.e. alt+f4 does a switch to VT4 and closes the current window.
