Re: Problem with sawfish and Evolution

That's odd, I'm using sawfish 1.3 with Evolution 1.4.5 without this
problem.  Perhaps this is something that was fixed between 1.4 and
1.4.5?  I seem to remember there were a few other focusing issues
(though not errors like you described) that have been fixed since.
