Bug Description

I use the unity8-desktop-session-mir with my regular desktop and noticed that for some apps the keyboard input focus is wrong.

I can reproduce this with the following steps:
- use click to install "Uberbag" and "Light Off"
- start "Light Off" first, it goes into the right side corner of the screen as a "side app" (sorry, don't know the correct term)
- start "Uberbag" it has a (web?) based input to login
- click on the "Username or email" field of the app and start typing
- watch that no input arrives in the "uberbag" window
- move the "side-panel" away (to the right corner so that it vanishes)
- now the keyboard input enters the "uberbag" application

The "sometimes" seems to specific to the right-side-bar use, when a phone application is running on the side the main context is not able the get the input

I imagine this is definitely related to the side stage, 'cause only one of them can has keyboard focus, and we're probably not refocusing the main stage app when you click on it ('cause it doesn't matter for touch input).

With latest devel-propsed branch (with shell rotation enabled on a nex7) I can't reproduce this. An unrelated issue is that the keyboard is so large in landscape mode, that I can't see what I'm typing into the Uberbag app until I close it though.

I realized that this is desktop session, and since I can't actually get these apps to download at the moment, I'll keep investigating.
