I just noticed that it is apparently grabbing the mouse when it is doing
a Sync operation. It happened twice today that I clicked on Chandler to
look at something (I use pointer focus), Chandler started a sync
operation, I clicked on the desktop pager to switch desktops and it
didn't work. I had to watch the status bar messages in Chandler finish
before I could continue to work.
