I think the latexmk command does something similar. See if you have an
instance of that running in the background somewhere.
Yes; I was running latexmk. With the -pvc option the situation was
latexmk -pvc -dvi -pdf mydocument.tex
That is why I closed the xdvi window, but quickly discovered that the
process which calls xdvi still was running. Restarting the computer
solved the problem. I did not try simply restarting xfce.
A month ago I was using latexmk with the same options on this machine.
I seem to recall an occasional jump back to the xdvi window, but not the
constant jumping back I was seeing today. So I think that the new
Cherry keyboard must be the culprit.
