Lost keyboard focus

Every now and then IDEA seems to lose the keyboard focus, and nothing I try will get the focus back: the only way is to restart IDEA.

This is driving me crazy. Is anyone else experiencing the same (on Linux)?

By lost focus do you mean it is impossible to type into editors? I'm experiencing this since upgrading to the latest EAP release. I'm running in Ubuntu. Strangely closing all the editors, then opening an editor twice seems to fix the problem. I've yet to work out what is causing it in the first place.

This is usually a conflict between compiz.real and the JDK (some libraries). This is fixed in the Sun JDK 1.6.0_14 or greater. You could also try a non-sun JDK.
