That's a rather large, blind leap. I've never seen it happen. I
think that it's more likely that dmenu is grabbing focus,
assuming that no apps are getting keyboard events. It's also
possible that keybindings have been disabled, as via Ctrl+Alt+T.

The higher the level of prestige accorded the people
behind the plan, the least less chance there is of
abandoning it.
