[Xquartz-dev] Mouse focus issue...

I'll start by saying this isn't about normal shipping Xquartz or beta.

I've used 2.7.0beta2 and its NOT exhibiting this problem.

I do my own xorg-server builds.

Heres what happens when using xorg-server 1.11.1 … I thought it was my code modifications, so I took them out and did a stock build, just putting on the same patches as the macport build does, and the problem still happens.  Basically, the mouse and keyboard focus is not on new windows right after the server starts, until one window is clicked on first (which doesn't register as a click in the program).  I admit I've not build or tested this in 1.10, but it did not happen in the 1.9 branch for sure, and it does not happen in the 1.11.1 builds in Xquartz 2.7.0beta.  I've checked all the main plist settings, including focusing on new windows, and click through and everything, and they make no difference.

Is there some other patches you have used in making 2.7.0beta2 that might be helping this thats not listed in the portfile in Macports?  I thought the problem might be in darwin.c and had been looking through, but after I saw 2.7.0 did NOT have the same problem and was the same xorg-server, I'm confused why this is happening to me when I build it myself.  Any suggestions of where to look to fix the problem would be appreciated, as I know very little about how its initializing or handling the mouse and keyboard focus.
