[Oroborus-user] Focus issues with Java applications in oroborus

I'm aware that the oroborus project is kind of in sleep mode, but if anyone can 
help out, that would be appreciated. The problem I'm explaining might not seem 
to be related to oroborus, but I managed to get the same things working under 
TWM, so there's something in oroborus that accounts for this difference even if 
it seems unrelated at first glance.

When running certain Java GUI applications (in this case, a 
javax.swing.JFrame), I cannot focus on components of type JPanel, while I can 
focus on JTextFields. Running the exact same application under TWM, the focus 
works as expected also on the JPanel. Note that the focus on the window itself 
(the JFrame) works fine under both WMs. I don't know exactly why the WM would 
affect the selection of sub-components in the window, but obviously it does.

I've tried to dig a bit in the oroborus source code, but I'm not familiar with 
coding X-related things, so I can't even begin to guess what the issue is (if 
there is one). If anyone can either figure out why this happens and suggest a 
patch, or can give me some pointers to where in the code to look for it, I'd 
appreciate it. Or, if I seem to have messed something up and this isn't at all 
related to oroborus, that would also be useful :)

Note: Running oroborus-2.0.18 under FreeBSD without any desktop environment.
