Funny keyboard bahaviour, maybe grab?


I recently installed Ubuntu Karmic Koala from scratch, putting in a recent snapshot of both Emacs and Sawfish.
Since then, whichever I type,
Emacs complains that this Sawfish window-manager keybinding is undefined.

key bindings work when any other application is focused, so I suspect this is an Emacs problem.  What I don't understand, is that IMHO the window manager should take these key events and an application like Emacs should never even notice them?  AFAIK, the only exception to this rule is if Emacs grabs the keyboard, as it should while prompting for a password.

The only way out, seems not to fully maximize emacs, so a thin strip of the pager remains, such that I can mouse-click focus away from Emacs, before typing my key-combo.  I have a very keyboard-centric setup, and I spend more than half of my time in Emacs, so this is a major hassle!
