The only thing related in the app node is below:
    <application name="xfce4-terminal" role="DesktopBackground">
      <!-- # Only if you want a full size terminal. -->

However, this only applies to the DesktopBackground role - and even if
I remove it and reconfigure openbox, the problem still occurs. Apart
from that, focusNew is yes.

Anything changed from openbox 3.4.11 to 3.5?
