Description Ekeluo Chukwuogor 2010-07-12 22:52:56 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

My lower right corner is set to activate the flip switch effect. Discovered that I can't scroll through the windows with the wheel, or even click to select (actually arrows keys don't work either). Don't think it was so previously (before 4.5 rc, i.e 4.4.2), not too sure though.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Activate flip switch via screen corner.

Actual Results:  
Can't navigate with mouse, no clicking or scrolling supported.

Expected Results:  
Should be able to scroll through open windows and select with mouse only.

The source code says that cursor keys have never been supported, but easy to add.

Adding mouse wheel support should be simple, while clicking is rather difficult.
