    Is there a cat walking across your keyboard? Actually, either your mouse button is being pressed or a key combo is being hit causing the "active" window to be something other than the one you want. The other alternative is a broken OS but I would explore the first idea first. If that doesn't work, consider reinstalling the OS with "archive and install."

    Are you typing on a laptop? When I'm typing on my PowerBook sometimes I'll hit the trackpad by accident and this happens. It's quite annoying.
