Bug Description

Xmir -rootless: Buttons are randomly unclickable

I've noticed this in LibreOffice Impress and Chromium browser. Sometimes when clicking buttons, the button just flickers and does nothing. Sometimes it also involves a popup menu flickering and out.

Seems like this is caused by the recent focus tracking feature. Disabling that makes popup menus attached to buttons work again.

Also affecting xenial now. Although I suspect xenial already has this bug fix and really it's not adequately fixed _everywhere_.

Ken: What apps are you seeing this affecting? And what's your Xmir command line?
