Can't Type After Alternating Windows

Bug Description

Jaunty 9.04

I'm not sure if anyone will be able to reproduce this error but I've seen it on two systems now. I installed RC and then did upgrades, I am now going to clean install to see if the problem persists.

Sometimes when I alt+tab between windows I can no longer type in windows unless I either minimize the window, shrink it or exit it and start it back up. I've seen this behaviour in text editor and pidgin now.

Here is how I found how to reproduce it every time on my system:

I am creating a website so I open the folder with the files inside, I open the css file with text editor and then open the index page on a web browser (firefox or galeon). At this point I have the text editor open, browser and nautilus with the folder open. If I alt+tab to the browser and then alt + tab back to the text editor I can't type at all.

Thanks for the hard work
