* TkpChangeFocus --
* This function is invoked to move the official X focus from one window
* to another.
* Results:
* The return value is the serial number of the command that changed the
* focus. It may be needed by the caller to filter out focus change
* events that were queued before the command. If the function doesn't
* actually change the focus then it returns 0.
* Side effects:
* The official X focus window changes; the application's focus window
* isn't changed by this function.
TkWindow *winPtr, /* Window that is to receive the X focus. */
int force) /* Non-zero means claim the focus even if it
* didn't originally belong to topLevelPtr's
* application. */

* Don't set the X focus to a window that's marked override-redirect.
* This is a hack to avoid problems with menus under olvwm: if we move
* the focus then the focus can get lost during keyboard traversal.
* Fortunately, we don't really need to move the focus for menus: events
* will still find their way to the focus window, and menus aren't
* decorated anyway so the window manager doesn't need to hear about the
* focus change in order to redecorate the menu.

* Check to make sure that the focus is still in one of the windows of
* this application or one of their descendants. Furthermore, grab the
* server to make sure that the focus doesn't change in the middle of this
* operation.

* ungrab command is still sitting in our output buffer, we could
* deadlock.
