Just an update now that I'm home with my Myth box. I went into MythWeather
and couldn't escape. Tried moving the mouse - nothing. Alt-tabbed to a
konsole (I'm using KDE as a WM), and checked the position of the mouse
pointer; it was right in the centre of the screen. Alt-tabbed back, still
couldn't escape out. I then pressed the left mouse button and suddenly I
could escape out. Very odd! I will keep an eye on this and report back as to
whether this consistently fixes the issue or not.

Regarding KDE, does anyone have any suggestion on the setting I should have
for "focus stealing prevention"?
