Brief note to demonstrate that Scherneck is not alone:

I'm seeing an identical phenomenon on a Dell laptop* running Win 7
Professional, SP 1; X Server is 1.15.1 (i686-pc-cygwin). Remote system is a
CentOS 5.6 box, and I'm connecting with "ssh -XY user@hostname". I'm running
gnome-terminal and launching emacs 24.3 from there. I'll see if I can find
somewhere to post the log file.

The problem occurs when I run emacsclient to connect to an existing instance
of emacs; the file shows up in emacs and emacsclient exits as expected, but
focus remains "stuck" in emacs for some time.

*laptop is running BIOS A13, with HD Graphics 4000, in case it matters.
