Hi Jehan,

As far as I can tell these are all the same issue / closely related. If you read
through some of the other posts here there is also mention of unresponsive UI
elements / unrecognised mouse clicks. I first noticed this problem with the
vector graphic import dialogue in GIMP - I could not select different options
after the first one. Although the work-arounds mentioned above (click on
different window and back again, and use of space bar to confirm selection)
helped. However I also confirmed that I suffered the same layer dragging problem
as first mentioned. In addition this issue also is manifested as unresponsive
tool bar icons in Inkscape. I believe therefore that all these problems are one
and the same. Perhaps other people here can help confirm this.
I am not a developer but your suggestion of a GTK+ issue sounds like it's on the
right track. With regard to the AutoHotKey script - it applies an overlay to
Windows to provide additional dimming functionality so  I guess one could look
into how it is interacting with the Windows UI to achieve this.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you would like any more info.

All the best,
