This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


The logic to detect "non-selected-windows" seems to get it wrong as often as
it gets it right. I'm typing right now with a hollow cursor for example. I
can't tell when it happens, it happens more often than not though.
Occasionally I'm pleasantly surprised to find it isn't happening.


Usually this just means I can't tell which window is active since they all
have hollow cursors. But it gets really painful when something sets
cursor-in-non-selected-windows to nil -- then I'm typing entirely blind.
Incidentally I find it somewhat offensive that some packages set this
variable, shouldn't it be a user choice?

I'm using Xorg from the Debian package version 1:7.0.22. My window manager is
BOG standard twm from the Debian package version 1:1.0.1-4. I can't imagine
what else might relate to this. I'm not even running any GUI programs with a
tendency to grab the mouse, just a couple xterms.
