In the version of zwei on system 29.96 NWS, with microcode 669, on LISP Machine Seven:
Selecting another editor window with the mouse
when ZWEI is waiting for input inside an I-search
has paradoxical effects.
The other window becomes selected according to the window system,
but the next command typed has its effect on the original (deselected) window.
The following command has its effect on the newly selected window,
as it should.
Selecting another window at such a time is perfectly reasonable,
just as C-X O is reasonable, and it should terminate the I-search
normally (pushing point, etc).
Presumably a similar paradox occurs if the mouse is used to
switch windows after a C-X. I would say, abort the command.
