comment Copying part of an image with GIMP (Mac) places the png logo on the clipboard instead?
Apparently this is a problem with X11 on Mac, with the X11 clipboard not being shared with other applications.

comment How to make a non-active window also react to mouse clicks immediately, rather than having it become only active?
Thanks for the info, Chris. So much for consistency, but oh well.

Indeed, not really what I was looking for. The ⌘+click 'trick' either doesn't work for me or it's also application-specific, like normal clicks. Strangely enough, some clicks are always honored (specifically buttons like the close, minimize and maximize ones), regardless of what application I'm dealing with...

Good question. I tested some more, first by copy-pasting in Paintbrush, which worked, and then pasting into GIMP, which also worked. However, after trying to copy something in GIMP, I noticed the clipboard still contained the old content. So copying doesn't seem to work for me at all in GIMP. As for the png icon image, I did copy some .png files around in Finder, and apparently image editing programs handle such content by displaying the file type icon image (both Paintbrush and GIMP do this).

Now that you mention it, some apps do indeed receive click events (Finder, Terminal). Most other apps don't: XCode, Firefox, TextWrangler, Thunderbird, iChat...
