10.3: Switch Terminal window focus with mouse movement
Authored by: u2mr2os2 on May 06, '05 10:32:33PM

Be careful using this with Terminal. It will steal input focus from other apps if you pass over a Terminal window in the background. This isn't too annoying in itself, but it's really a problem if you are trying to select from a menu (main or popup) and pass over a Terminal window in the background - it will cancel the menu. An especially annoying case of this is if you have a Terminal window that is down by the Dock, and use a right-click menu on a dock item. The popup menu has a gap between the Dock and the menu, and if a Terminal window is behind that gap, it will cancel the popup menu if you pass over the gap. You have to carefully move the mouse up to the popup menu in the middle where the pointy menu bottom bridges the gap.
