Bug#450693: metacity: Desktop randomly hangs on mouse input

Package: metacity
Version: 1:2.14.5-4
Severity: important

Within the last month or so, my desktop has started regularly hanging 
when I click on window buttons such as the minimize button or close 
("X") button. The cursor still moves, but thereafter both mouse clicks 
and keyboard input are ignored. Position-sensitive behaviours still 
function, such as icons that highlight when you move over them or that 
pop-up descriptions, but if I click a second time anywhere on the
while in this state then even that stops working.

Typing and clicking on things within applications does not trigger this 
problem. Switching to a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+Fn and killing metacity 
(which restarts) clears the condition.
