I tried to search for my problem, but I have troubles to describe it myself - so I did not find anything.
I think an update on my friends notebook broke something. If she starts thunderbird, firefox, xterm (these are the ones I know of) there is a problem with the mouse: it does not send click events to these windows (or whatever - at least she cannot click anything, not even close the window). If libreoffice is started, everything works fine.
Somewhere googling around I have found similar problems with certain qt3 implementations, but I do not know, if this is an issue here.
The packages that were updated last before these things started to happen (as far as we can tell) are:
- Code: Select all

Has anyone experienced anything similar? Can anyone give me hints on how to solve this (or else she might get even more crazy on me!)?
I will be close to that notebook in a couple of hours again, so please don't rush with commands I should type!
The system was installed about a month ago with the thattime current LDME-image.
Many thanks in advance.
