I posted a few days ago a procedure to reproduce it each time :
change the time by typing : (in root privilege)
date -s 12:34
clock -w
that's it : everything is messed up (windows focus, I mean).
(note that this can hang the machine if there's some wharfed clocks : wmtime,
... ; just shut wharf down )

actually you can do the same by "working really hard and having lots
of editing sessions unsaved..." ;-)
