I think this has been changed in CVS; can you give it a shot?

I have no idea, but I often have trouble with this kind of behaviour
(especially with Mozilla). Can you see if Pan/Galeon actually *move* the
mouse pointer when they pop a dialog up?

extent that we do not follow the brain-dead "lack of cancel and lack of OK
button" like the GNOME2 control centre).

There is a setting for that in the global prefs, and you can use the space
