Summary: Pressing any global keyboard shortcut causes temporary
loss of focus
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 13.1
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: openSUSE 13.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: GNOME

When pressing any global keyboard shourtcut (configurable via System settings
-> Keyboard -> Shortcuts; i.e. for switching keyboard layout, volume up/down),
focus temporary switches from active text input to something else, then
restores back shortly. Maybe even active window loses focus, but window frame
does not shows this (window header remains to look active).

For example: when I press ctrl+shift here to switch keyboard layout, when
writing this description, yellow frame disappears from text input box, text
caret disappears too; they appear again when releasing ctrl+shift. The same
occurs in all other programs, i.e. terminal.

It causes serious annoyance, for example in Twitter when losing focus in Reply
text box, reply rolls up and I have to click it again with mouse and set caret
to correct place each time I switch keyboard layouts.

Other key combinations, not only ctrl+shift, also cause this.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open for example gedit
2. Press Ctrl+S
3. Press Create Folder button
4. Try to change keyboard layout or volume up/down
5. Focus will be removed from new folder, folder will not be created
Actual Results:
Focus is removed from new folder, folder will not be created.

Expected Results:
Layout changed, folder name is on desired layout, folder is created and named
as user wants.

This bug exists at least in Ubuntu (see for more
reproduce scenarios ), RedHat 7
( The bug is reported to
upstream too ( with no luck.
