Yep, that made a lot of sense and I've now made changes that should fix
it. The changes I've made affect which window that should get focus when
you change viewport in other ways when using the switcher or scale too.
Switching to a new viewport will not necessarily move the input focus to
the window below the pointer but to the last window focused in that
viewport. I'm not sure if this makes more sense than the old behavior
but we can easily adjust it to match the old behavior without breaking
the switcher/scale part if we want that. Let me know what you think.
