this repulses me to my core. Every so often when I switch to my emacs from a different workspace (awesome wm) the cursor appears just as an outlined box and is not active until I switch back and forth between workspaces a second time. What is this behaviour and how can I prevent it?

    Can you reproduce this from emacs -Q? – Basil May 28 '19 at 11:18
  • What @Basil said. Provide a more complete, step-by-step recipe to reproduce your problem, starting from emacs -Q. – Drew May 28 '19 at 15:51
  • problem is that this issue does only occur irregularly, so it is hard to reproduce the bug, which I am not certain is related to emacs in the first place... – CD86 May 29 '19 at 16:54
