So I don't want to go down a blind alley here: I'm not suggesting that
30 terminals, each 2 characters wide, is a rational work environment. :)
My tossing 20-30 terminals on a screen was a way to exacerbate the
problem so it was easy to measure.
The Real Problem is that I can sweep my mouse pointer across my desktop,
to (for instance) move from the web browser to an editor, start typing,
and get my input lost. I haven't yet gotten bits distributed over other
windows, but I fear that. Some semi-random set of keystrokes
accidentally dropped in an interstitial root window. *shudder*.
The most common case of this is when I copy something to the cut buffer,
and go 'somewhere else' to paste it. At the moment, I've added to my
mental process a "pause and wait for the G- D- border to turn red".
Otherwise things get pasted into nowhere. That's a serious interruption
