Modal dialogs break the map view mouse events
Submitted by Marius Stanciu
Hi, new around here!
Popping any modal dialog ( then closing it ) while keeping the mouse inside the main window makes the map view ignore all the mouse events ( such as clicks, drags, right-click context menus etc ).
Here's a gif depicting it on my (Fedora) system: https://media.giphy.com/media/3o7abrnkUoKlHl6wuY/giphy.gif
After a lot of trial and error and research I figured out it was a Clutter bug ( might report it later on their bug thingie), specifically, the interaction between Clutter and Gdk.
I have found a workaround/fix by changing the clutter's windowing backend to X11 (the default is Gdk ) but I am not really sure about the implications of such a change ( although everything seems to be fine on my machine ).
I will attach a patch containing my hotfix.
