The title bar belongs to the window manager; mouse clicks there will
not be reported to the application.

If the WM implements a click-to-focus policy, you may receive a
FocusIn event when the window is selected. Also, you might receive a
Configure event if the WM changes the window's position in the
stacking order.

Re-arrange the widget hierarchy so that the buttons aren't descendents
of the paned window.
