You are right! After havinging changed the selection-tool I obviously
forgot to focus the image-frame.
Now, focusing it cosciously everything works perfectly.
What a stupid mistake.
Perhaps I should append that I use KDE and I originally had set in
the "Window Configurations": "Focus follows mouse" . With this
configuration and with "Classic sloppy focus" it still doesn't work.
It only works with : "Click to focus".
