Running ThinLinc in fullscreen will grab the keyboard so that system
keys such as alt-tab can be sent into the session. However the ThinLinc
client should release the keyboard grab when focus is lost eg. clicking
some were on the local desktop (other monitor).

I verified the above behavior using ThinLinc client version 4.3.0 on a
windows 8 desktop with multi-head setup and couldn't reproduce your

What client platform and ThinLinc client version are you using ?

If your client is a linux, which windows manager are you using ?

Kind Regards,
