This one is strange as there's no change I can possibly imagine that could cause this: I just switched by MythTV frontend to a new OLED TV I just bought. That is I went from using DVI to HDMI etc...all working perfectly. I use a wireless keyboard on that machine occasionally. I have fluxbox keys configured to do things like opening terminals...for example in ~/.fluxbox/keys:
Code:
Mod1 Control t :ExecCommand uxterm

That is, Ctrl-Alt-t for a terminal. After changing to the new TV (which can't possibly be related) I thought at first that this just wasn't working. I though that maybe something was wrong with the keyboard. I finally figured out that the terminals were in fact opening, but weren't getting focus. They were opening behind the MythTV frontend and I had accumulated like 20 terminals that I was able to get to using Alt-Tab. This has worked perfectly for like seven years until this.

What on earth could suddenly cause that? I do the same thing on several machines with the exact same versions of about everything, and it's just happening on that one. Totally dumbfounded.

Perhaps putting
Code:
session.screen0.focusNewWindows:        true
in ~/.fluxbox/init might help.
