I've got two fairly new FC5 installations. I installed from the ISOs, updated the kernel, and installed the NVIDIA drivers. The System->Preferences->Windows "Select windows when the mouse moves over them" worked.
Then I installed the stuff from Fedorafaq, the mp3 players ( gstreamer-plugins-ugly, xmms-mp3, kdemultimedia-extras), and the Totem DVD player (totem-xine, libdvdcss, libdvdnav). Lastly, I installed yumex.
Now, no matter what the selection is in Window Preferences, I must click in each window to select it. I prefer the "Select windows when mouse moves over them" mode, which no longer works. I did not do regression testing when adding the packages with yum, so I really don't know which package screwed this up.
Both FC5 installations do this.
Any idea why or how to correct this? Has anyone else seen this behavior? I have searched here and haven't found a cause or solution.
My box is an HP Pavillion a1340n AMD64x2 running 2.6.16-1.2096_FC5.
