I’m hitting a strange issue where the keyboard and mouse input gets locked to a single window when running on a virtual display. Sometimes the keyboard and mouse are stuck on different windows.
– When running using a MacOS client it is possible to recover from this by clicking outside the window, then clicking back in the window, bringing up the page curl and then going back to the session.
– When running using a Linux client there doesn’t appear to be a way out. Logging into the server and restarting the window manager can sometimes give a temporary respite of maybe 10-15 seconds of usage before the same problem returns. We’re running XFCE, but different window managers seem to survive differently – metacity gives about 10-15 seconds of life after a lock-up, xfwm locks up again almost immediately but shifts the focus around a bit.
I’m having trouble working out what causes this to occur – it can run fine for a few hours before this issue occurs. Running 4.3.30 on both client and server, on both Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04. MacOS client is under 10.10.1.
Has anyone else hit this issue? The metacity different makes me hopeful changing window manager will have some effect – going to try different combinations.
