Well, I shouldn't send my emails that fast ;-)
In fact, I'm pretty sure the commit mentioned above introduced that
Before, we always raised a window on every window state change (such as
enabling fullscreen mode).
Now, we don't raise windows on state changes.

However, I'm not completely sure how to define what the correct
behaviour here is. Should we raise windows on all state changes, on
certain state changes or on no state changes? Opinions anyone?

Metacity raises on maximization and fullscreen changes, I guess that's
why this is expected behaviour at least for former Metacity users ;-)
