fix BadMatch error by removing XSetInputFocus() call

This bug described at

I'm also using fluxbox:

    $ spicec -h -p 5900
    Error: x error on display :0 error BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) minor 0 request X_SetInputFocus

This issue happens both on current 0.11.3 and latest 0.12.0.

The "patch" attached.

Upstream recommends you try remote-viewer from the virt-viewer package instead since spicy is not supported by them.
Comment 2 Matthias Maier gentoo-dev 2015-08-16 18:01:48 UTC
Upstream will not fix this issue - I don't see a way to make this patch compatible with the intended behavior.
