Hi,

As far as I know there is no way to capture events in general that are targeted to other applications. If this was available then it would be a serious security flaw.

Actually it's scaringly easy to do and is a major security flaw in X11.
Don't even bother to ask how. I have no intention of telling anyone how to do it.
