Probably the easiest thing is to search in your source (and the libraries you're using) for XGrabPointer, XGrabButton, or XGrabKeyboard and #ifdef those calls so you can turn them off with a compilation flag. This seems to be the most common approach in code I've seen. GTK 1.3 doesn't seem to have this but I saw a small patch on the web so perhaps it's in 2.x. Qt has a -nograb option to avoid this problem. Other tools may have similar support already, or it should be easy enough to add unless there are tons of XGrab* calls. Another solution is to display Wing across the network to another machine so it's not affected by the grab that remains in place. I found some indication that CodeCenter ungrabs during breakpoints but also other discussions calling such code an ugly and potentially dangerous hack. We could try to ungrab while stopping but my initial inclination is that this might introduce problems and that conditionalizing the grabs in code is probably a better general soln. - Stephan
