Mouse release event not received when unmap occurs during drag event


Hello,
I am new to this list, so if this inquiry should be sent elsewhere, please let
me know

I have run across an issue in a few GTK applications, (namely Pidgin
and Firefox) and I
was wondering if I could get an opinion as to where this needs to be reported.
First let me give some context here. I use the WMII window manager, and it has
a mode where
windows are stacked vertically on the screen, so only one window is visible at
a time.
Apparently what it does (At least, this is how I have interpreted this from the
issue tracker
when i tried to report the bug on therehttp://code.google.com/p/wmii/issues/detail?id=182),
is that it unmaps the windows when they leave focus.

This is where GTK comes in, an issue that I have often is
when I do something in an application that opens up a new window over an old
window,
such as open a conversation in pidgin, the buddy list is covered up, and I have
let go of the mouse,
but when I switch back to the buddy list window, it acts like I have not let go
of the mouse, and
whenever i move the mouse around, it takes the contact node that I clicked
around with it.
This also happens in firefox when moving the scrollbar around, and during that
event,
another window pops up. Switching back to the firefox window makes it act like
I am constantly
scrolling. Should this situation be handled by GTK?

Anyways, Sorry for such a long description there, but I just wanted to be
clear. If someone could
point me in the right direction as to how this needs to be resolved, it would
be appreciated.
Alex
