XBoard 4.7.3 no longer has this problem. This bug can be closed.

Is it supposed to receive focus? It should get focus when you click it, and to do something with it you would normally click it anyway.

If this is a problem it sounds more like a window-manager problem than an XBoard problem. It is the window manager that decides when to give an application focus.

While using the ctwm window manager (version 3.8a) on X.Org X Server 1.12.3, the XBoard window does not receive focus when the mouse pointer enters it.

xboard version master-20121211
