One minute I'll be typing...the next the box is minimized or the place i'm typing is the wrong box or just nowhere...

Its a clean install of ubuntu...

Any idea why?

if you are using a laptop it can be because you are moving the touchpad by mistake while typing. there's an xorg.conf fix for that, but i don't know where, someone will know if you need it.

That's very possible as I am using a laptop with one of the dell touchpads that can do different things if you touch it right, one of which is scrolling.

If anyone knows where that fix is i'd be grateful.
