That is not always the case now. I'm using Focus follows mouse. When I
have two overlapping windows, and use alt-tab to raise and focus the
lower right one, to get this:

|p +----+
|  |    |
+--|    |

When I then switch desktops using the keyboard, and switch back, the
lower one is focussed al of a sudden!

I did not move my mouse, so I don't expect focus to change.

Can I remedy this using rc.xml?
