Interesting. Here's my config in case anyone is interested :

I will try to solve the problem and report back if I find anything.

Yes, I have two screens. I also get the weird maximized behavior from Inkscape but I think that is unrelated as everything else works fine.

    I have just discovered that the behavior is more complex than just
    treating any click as mod4+button1 : Inkscape jumps between
    screens, but not within a single screen. If I reduce my setup to
    only one screen, there is no problem. Let me explain this better :

    I have 2 screens, both showing their first tag, using the layout
    awful.layout.suit.tile. I have a bunch on xterms on each screen. I
    open inskape on screen 1, it starts maximized even though I have
    the rule

        { rule = { class = "Inkscape" },
          properties = {maximized_horizontal = false,
    maximized_vertical = false } },

    With mod4+button1, I can drag it around screen1 and make it jump
    between the possible positions in the tiling scheme, I can also
    drag it over to screen 2 in a controlled way.

    If I left click on inkscape and drag towards screen 2 (nothing
    should happen), then it immediately jumps to screen2, without
    going through available positition within the tiling scheme of
    screen 1. I can not drag it around screen 2 either, all I can do
    is make it it go back to its initial position on screen 1 if I
    drag the mouse in the other direction.

    Do you guys have multiple screens?
