      We have a CLIM application that works fine under X11R4, and twm (Lucid 4.0,
      CLIM 0.9, Sun 2).  However, under olwm mouse input works fine, but when one
      goes to type in a string (in response to an AVV window, say) it just beeps.
      I've used xprop to look at the window properties, which seem similar to
      other applications (xgif, xedit) that work fine.  Any suggestions?
  I was able to fix the problem by setting the following X resource:
  	OpenWindows.FocusLenience:	True
Yes, i forgot to mention i do this.  It does seem to help with some
programs but not our CLIM application.

  Note that you need to restart the window manager for it to take note of the new
  value.  I believe the problem has to do with conventions for windows that accept
  input.  It should be possible to fix the problem by setting some sort of X
  attribute on the window, but I was not able to get that to work.
Yes, this is what i'm working on, but somehow haven't gotten it to work either.
