Mouse position and focus are not necessarily related, but I know what you

Hmm, maybe things have changed in KDE3 from KDE2. I'm not sure why the popup
would appear when you're typing; I thought it only appeared if you had just
selected something. Either way, I also thought that most such popups were now
using the KPassivePopup (sp?) code and didn't get focus at all, unless
clicked on (as, I now understand, Glen wanted).
Having the popup get focus has benefits for keyboard users, in that they can
select "Open with Konqueror", for example, with a single keystroke. You can
also, of course, cancel the popup by the same method, i.e. just type a 'c'.
Not giving the popup focus would negate this. Probably best if configurable
I personally (in KDE2) just set the popup timeout for 2 seconds. It doesn't
become very annoying then when I don't want it. If it goes away too fast, a
quick Ctrl+Alt+R gets it back again.
I'll have to check things out when I get around to compiling the latest CVS
