It seems to me that the focus issues are related to the handling
of WB_OWNERDRAWDECORATION, which present in (b) but not in (a). In
particular the SalFrameStyleFlags::OWNERDRAWDECORATION case
in GtkSalFrame::Init - which (wrongly) assumes the everything that has
self-decoration is a toolbar, and shouldn't have focus.

I'm getting different results with different combinations of the
GdkWindowTypeHint + gtk_window_set_accept_focus arg. +
whether FloatWinPopupFlags::GrabFocus was passed to the
FloatingWindow::StartPopupMode calls.

I played with it a bit today, but had several issues with .ui based
dropdowns. So I'm afraid this will just bring a new set of issues...
