Summary0001659: 3dconnexion space navigator moves view even when FreeCAD is not the active application
DescriptionWhen FreeCAD is not the active application, the viewport still reacts to space navigator actions.

Also, this is problematic when two FreeCAD instances are running as both are simultaneously controlled by the space navigator...
