Re: CLX and OpenWindows incompatibility?

The ususal reason for the problem you reported is that your application
did not tell the window manager (via the "input hint") that it expected
to receive input.  Many window managers, such as twm, don't pay
attention to this hint, but olwm (correctly) does.

>From the OLWM manual:
       FocusLenience (boolean)
              If this is set to true, olwm will not  enforce  the
              ICCCM  requirement that windows must have the input
              hint set in order to receive the input focus.  This
              option  is  useful  if  you run clients that aren't
              ICCCM-compliant,  like  many  X11R3-based  clients.
              Default value: false.
