4. to get it back in terminator or gnome-terminal, I have to
  a. right click terminator or gnome-terminal or
  b. Alt-Tab switch to other application and then switch back

I only find this problem with emacs and terminator or gnome-terminal.
Alt-Tab from emacs to other apps like firefox works ok.
Alt-Tab from other apps to terminator or gnome-terminal works ok.

It seems to me that emacs holds the keyboard input focus and doesnot
wish to give it to terminator or gnome-terminal when Alt-Tab.

Please use M-x report-emacs-bug next time, it contains information that are useful.

What window manager are you using?
Do you have click-to-focus or focus-follows-mouse?
When you Alt-Tab to gnome-terminal, does the title bar color change on gnome-terminal and Emacs?
Does this happen when you start Emacs with -Q?
