fvwm ignores clickToFocus for function keys

Okay, I'll give that a try ... except ... can I run FVWM rootless?  Where will it go?  Doesn't rootless mode mean that the Windows window manager is used?

BTW, I have identified what gets sent when the cursor is NOT inside the bounds of the window: it's the *unmapped* version of the function key.

Okay, here's the information I forgot to supply (or only hinted at): I use the xterm.VT100.Translations resource (in my .Xdefaults file) to map the function keys:

xterm*VT100.Translations: #override \n\
    <Key> Print: string(0x7f) \n\
    <Key> Pause: insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0) \n\
    Ctrl <Key> Prior: scroll-back(1,halfpage) \n\
    Ctrl <Key> Next: scroll-forw(1,halfpage) \n\
    Shift <Key> Up: string(0x1b) string("OAA") \n\
    Shift <Key> Down: string(0x1b) string("OBB") \n\
    Ctrl <Key> 3: string(0x1b) string("\\\\") \n\
    Ctrl <Key> 4: string(0x1b) string("_") \n\
    Shift <Key> F7: string("/media/") \n\
    Shift <Key> F8: string("[<>|]") \n\
    Shift <Key> F9: string(0x1b) string("[35~") \n\
    Shift <Key> F10: string(0x1b) string("[36~") \n\
    Shift <Key> F11: string(" 2>&1 | ") \n\
    Shift <Key> F12: string(" 2>&1 | tee -a make.$md\n") \n\
    Alt <Key> F2: keymap(vt100)\n\
    Alt <Key> F1: keymap(None)\n\
    <Key> F1: string(0x1b) string("_") \n\
    <Key> F4: string("$ARCH/") \n\
    <Key> F5: string("../Include/%:t:r.hpp") \n\
    <Key> F6: string("../Source/%:t:r.cpp") \n\
    <Key> F7: string("->next") \n\
    <Key> F8: string("    ") \n\
    <Key> F9: insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0) \n\
    <Key> F10: string(" 2>&1 | ") \n\
    <Key> F11: string(" 2>&1 | head\n") \n\
    <Key> F12: string(" 2>&1 | less\n")

So, for example, if I hit F12 when the mouse cursor is outside the bounds of the window, ^[[24~ gets inserted onto my command line.
