I am seeing something like it, but not as severe by far. Not sure I
can reproduce it reliably, but it goes roughly like this: If I use
exposé to bring an X11 window forward, then keystrokes typically don't
go into that window afterwards, even with the mouse cursor placed on
top of it. Sometimes keystrokes go into another window, and sometimes
they disappear into the ether. And if I click on this window, the
mouse click goes to another window behind it, which then comes forward
(along with its application, if not X11). But afterwards, things
usually behave normally again. All it really means is that exposé is
rendered useless with X11 windows.
