In the bug created by Leo, http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=392889,
the recommendation from the Gnome people seems to be that we use
_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW but with a proper timestamp (this was wrong in Emacs).  If
some version of Metacity hangs, it is no fault of Emacs and should be handeled
as a Metacity bug.

On the other hand, it is late in the game (pretest-wise) and maybe a note in
etc/PROBLEMS is good enough for the release.
