Hmm, I just thought of something.. I had set Hint Window's to be transient 
to the main form, before I changed the BorderStyle code, but I never removed 
it when I was done. Since Hint Window's are still popup's..it is possible 
that they could get stuck recieving all Lazarus Mouse calls, though I 
thought this had been fixed, but if something in X or later versions of GTK 
has changed the behaviour of popup's this could have some deadly results. 
Try disabling the code that set hint windows transient for now. It is in the 
create routine.. I will look into making Hint windows Bordlerless Transient 
Dialogs instead on my system here and see how well that works. If it takes 
care of all the problems I will commit it and see what happens for other 
people using RH >=7.3
