Whoops I didn't see this reply, but I disagree that it should stick with the lowered window (or until you do something with the mouse).

The only way you can focus the window is to mouse off, then back in, and with a large, maximized, or fullscreen window, that sucks. Otherwise you'd have to click to focus the window, and that's really not keeping with the "follow mouse"/sloppy-focus scheme.

Certainly not behavior I'd want to see for the duration of openbox3. :P
