The grab is not released when you stop at an exception or break point, resulting in the behaviour your describe. This is a real pain if you run into it often. It can also happen to your keyboard with XGrabKeyboard. If it makes you feel any better, I think gdb has the same problem. The soln would be for us to detect the state of the X server and to ungrab when in the debugger and re-grab when continuing. From previously looking into this, I think it's not entirely trivial to do this correctly. I suppose we could try to blow away all grabs and ignore the possible consequences. Suggestions from X experts are more than welcome. - Stephan
