I wonder whether this is the same momentary-loss-of-focus issue that
I've been griping of for awhile.  I don't use full-screen mode but
the loss of a few keystrokes seems about the same.  I've been able
to correlate some of the events with iCal alarms (they consistently
happen 1 minute before an iCal alarm is due) and I suspect that
Time Machine wakeups may cause it too.
