sthibaul and lukefromdc menu-bar: transfer focus correctly on alt-F1
The background is in . One of
the conclusions, in
, is that mate-panel needs to properly transfer focus on alt-F1 keyboard

It used to work only by luck before, only because gtk used to
deactivate itself during a keyboard grab. But as discussed in that behavior poses
accessibility feedback issues, is not coherent, and keyboard grab
feedback will not be available in wayland anyway. Thus @ebassi saying
in that not
transferring focus properly is the actual bug.

This change explictly switches to the menu bar after saving which X Window
had the focus, and on menu bar deactivation restores focus to that X Window.

Fixes #851

mate-panel contains the MATE panel, the libmate-panel-applet library and
several applets:

  + the MATE panel is the area on your desktop from which you can run
    applications and applets, and perform other tasks.

  + the libmate-panel-applet library allows to develop small applications
    which may be embedded in the panel. These are called applets.
    Documentation for the API is available with gtk-doc.

  + the applets supplied here include the Workspace Switcher, the Window
    List, the Window Selector, the Notification Area, the Clock and the
    infamous 'Wanda the Fish'.

You may download updates to the package from:

mate-panel is a fork of gnome-panel.


See the file 'INSTALL'. If you are not using a released version of
mate-panel (for example, if you checked out the code from git), you
first need to run './'.
