I've tested the latest tip and it works just as you said. No focus
colors, but you can interact with both keyboard AND mouse now. Nice work!

Also, I found another "similar" bug with acroread (I use xpdf mostly,
but for some documents acroread actually works better). Anyway, for
example, the Find-dialog doesn't render properly. It only shows the
titlebar of the window, with no content at all, it looks like it has
been cut off. I reverted back to the old snap, and there it worked fine.
