The mouse still moves around but clicking on any window produces no response. However right-clicking > on any window (eg Firefox) brings up the context menu for the desktop!?This looks more like a bug in the window manager rather than a general bug. I'd recommend to reassign it.

I'd recommend again to reassign this bug to the window manager package. There you will probably find a better chance to get help. -- Cheers, Abou Al Montacir
