I recently installed Ubuntu Karmic Koala from scratch, putting in a
recent snapshot of both Emacs and Sawfish.
Since then, whichever I type, Emacs complains that this Sawfish window-manager keybinding is
The key bindings work
when any other application is focused, so I suspect this is an Emacs
problem. What I don't understand, is that IMHO the window manager
should take these key events and an application like Emacs should never
even notice them? AFAIK, the only exception to this rule is if Emacs
grabs the keyboard, as it should while prompting for a password.
The only way out, seems not to fully maximize emacs, so a thin strip of
the pager remains, such that I can mouse-click focus away from Emacs,
before typing my key-combo. I have a very keyboard-centric setup, and
I spend more than half of my time in Emacs, so this is a major hassle!
