Paul et al,
Any idea how to configure FVWM to not to give focus to xterm if one
specific window is displayed?

You might ask on an fvwm mailing list, but fvwm does have a
NeverFocus method that can be applied to an application such as xterm.

Yes, just subscribed to their forum and will ask that question.

But that would just fix your problem for xterm; to enforce focus for a
lock screen, there's more to do.  Have a look at the code for other
lock screens to find out what that is.

We do not provide any external application where the user can interact
with the keyboard/focus handling
in order to try and guess the information that should be secured.
Only the xterm is a concern.

If this is an embedded system or kiosk application, replace xterm with
something of your own making that uses libvte as a widget.  That way
you can assert full control over when the widget is visible.

I've found VTE acceptable for most use cases I've thrown at it.

Though I still use xterm when I can.
