Ah.. when he suggesting putting it in the "root" context, he also
meant removing it from the "desktop" context. if they replay the
event to the root window, then Openbox will get it twice in the
"desktop" context but only once in the "root" context.
That said, it'd be good if you could figure out why your work one
isn't getting the event thrown around by ROX in the same way.
