(Aside: I kind of wish that grabs were time-limited unless clients explicitly lifted the limit. That way, screen savers could lift the limit, and everything else would get sanity restored automatically if they buggily failed to release a grab, rather than ruining everyone's day. What you do if a grab expires is another matter. Send a new event, I suppose: killing the client is too evil and emitting an X error is nearly useless because they're too asynchronous so nobody handles them in any way except to kill the app.)

Which really sucks, as all keyboard shortcuts (including things like volume keys) stop working whenever there's a popup or menu on the screen. There's no end to how many times this gets reported as a bug:
