The Problem is with GTK > 2.16. Icons in windows stay highlighted after a copy operation or opened via the right-click menu.
Wary/Quirky is using a patched Rox that partially fixes the problem. The first issue mentioned above is fixed, however the issue of remaining highlighted after open via right-click-menu is still there.
One fix is to do this in /etc/profile:
However, some applications, such as mtPaint will misbehave with this set.
I have implemented it in a more constrained way. In /root/.xinitrc, I am now launching Rox like this:
#101107 GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true: rox with gtk>2.16 has a focus problem, partly fixed with my patched rox, but not properly, this should fix it.
#w468 on old PCs this sometimes does not start, see further down...
if [ -f /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPan1 ];then
GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin -r /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPan1
GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
...seems to be working ok now, testing in Wary (which has GTK 2.20.1).

Rox "fix" reverted
Oh no, Rox is misbehaving. I have reverted this "fix".
I got messages in /tmp/xerr.log, something like:
gdk-warning: XID collision, trouble ahead
Then the Rox window was freezing.

Maybe try it in the rox wrapper script? Maybe the ROX-Filers binary would need a wrapper too?

i've been doing it this way for quite awhile:
exec /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/AppRun "$@"
