[PD] Window focus in gem

Hi list,

I have a patch where I'm running the audio in one instance of pd and gem 
in another with -noaudio.
I have the audio pd patch sending the output of [keyname] to gem pd via 
[netsend], but after starting the patch in fullscreen the audio pd patch 
loses the window focus. It works to begin with for a few keystrokes, 
then I can no longer control the audio. I have a [gemkeyname] object in 
the gem patch which then takes over (presumably triggered by the gem 
activity that was controlled from the audio pd patch), but I lose the 
audio pd control.
I tried adding another netsend (on a different port) back to the audio 
pd, but then I get some double triggers!

So, what is the best way to maintain focus on one particular window? It 
would be fine if the gem window has focus all the time, or the audio pd 
window but I haven't worked out how and why it changes. I'm using Ubuntu 
Hardy and pd-extended-0.42.5.
