This looks like it is related to video hardware and drivers. It must not be able to handle the transparency stuff we do in the text entry, we should fallback more gracefully.

I think I was off base on that, I don't think it is related to rgba. Seems more an issue of input device and grabbing focus.

@zhownx: can you try a reply in gwibber to see if you get focus there?

I've tried the reply, then the box appears with the name whom I replied to... but there's no cursor, so I cant write the reply...
