        I am using RedHat 8 and I see the window focus problem on both
Gnome (metacity?) and KDE.  However, it seems like the problem only
occurs at 800x600 and not at 1280x1024.  Both WindowMaker and Sawfish
seem to be okay although Sawfish seems to be a little off with the
placement of the fullscreen mythtv window.
