[Pythonmac-SIG] pygame/pyobjc eats keys for subordinate process

I'm not sure if this is a pygame question or a pyobjc question, either 
could be causing the problem I'm currently debugging.

I'm invoking the Kagi purchase system from within my game. It opens a 
window, and I can click on the buttons and such, but all keystrokes are 
gobbled by the game before the Kagi window sees them. I've checked this 
by watching the events. If I bring other applications forward, they 
respond to the keyboard, just fine.

I've turned 'grabbing' off. And there doesn't seem to be a way to 'give 
up' keyboard focus. (there's only the key.get_focused method) Are there 
other places/docs I should be looking? I'm hoping that I might find a 
cocoa call that will give the sub-window full control over events.

I'm very close to shipping my adventure game, and this may be the last 
obstacle... yada,yada FLW! Assistance would be greatly appreciated.
