No, it's not.  This was caused by your fix to my first problem.  I
recompiled ratpoison with debug messages, and split the screen between
Mozilla and the messages.  These lines (and nothing else) appeared every time
the mouse left the Shockwave control:

ratpoison:../../../src/events.c:753: debug: --- Handling FocusOut ---
ratpoison:../../../src/events.c:708: debug: --- Handling ConfigureRequest ---
ratpoison:../../../src/window.c:182: debug: Window found in mapped window list.
ratpoison:../../../src/window.c:337: debug: Warp pointer
ratpoison:../../../src/events.c:246: debug: request CWStackMode 0
ratpoison:../../../src/events.c:250: debug: 'LunarStorm - Mozilla Firebird' 
window size: 0 0 510 766 1
ratpoison:../../../src/events.c:758: debug: --- Handling FocusIn ---

For some reason, Mozilla asks to be raised although it already is on top.
This confuses your fix and the mouse is reset to the saved position.

That's what I have.  The problem is that win==last_win not only when a
window has been closed, but also in my special case.

However, I found an easier solution: moving libnullplugin.so out of the
way.  I get rid of this problem, and also of the annoying popups asking me
to download plugins.  There's still something strange about ratpoison,
though - or maybe this should just be considered a Mozilla bug?

Yes, as well as I can; Sourceforge sometimes doesn't respond, but I believe
I haven't missed anything.
