oh that's much better than I thought. I only knew that the QPA prints out 
warnings like "not supported" so I expected that code would just break.

Maybe one could say that misconfiguring the X-Server is out of scope. So if 
it's grabbed it's assumed to stay grabbed.

QWindow::setMouseGrabEnabled should be fine. The QXcbWindow implementation 
looks properly to me, like actually checking whether the grab succeeded.
