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!

Do you have click-to-focus or focus-follows-mouse?
