I think this is an SDL "feature". I am playing a game in a window, I receive an instant message, pause, want to reply, but cannot because all my keypresses are handled by the game and then discarded, so no alt+tab, and the mouse pointer cannot leave the game window. Is there a way to take the focus away from those SDL windows?

ALT+TAB should do it. If not report a bug to the SDL team.

Three different computers and many different games, never worked for me.

Could also be a bug in the game.
