For me, this new behavior makes so much more sense than the old. When I
explicitly select a window to focus, I want that window to gain focus
regardless of where I have my mouse cursor placed. I guess one could
argue that under the sloppy focus model it also makes sense that focus
is actually determined by the mouse cursor location, but I still think
that when the user manually select a window (not using the mouse
cursor), it should gain focus.

Anyway, your recent change works great here. Thanks for reacting so
quickly to such a small issue.
