  raiseOnFocus is already off - if it was on, A would have been raised
 as soon as the pointer moved from B to A.  The problem is not to give A
 focus without raising it, but to actually be able to click inside its
 frame without raising it.  Scroll wheel events does -not- raise A, but
 all three mouse buttons does, so it's impossible to select some text
 with the pointer, move it back to B, and paste it there, because B
 hides behind A as soon as I try to select something.

  There only match in my rc.xml when grepping for "raise"
 (case-insensitive) is:


  So I don't use the raise action at all...
