The blame here is either with dwm or the application, depending on the
way you look at it. Essentially, dwm supports the _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW
EWMH client message, and your application sends it. I'm not sure dwm
should support this, as it doesn't really make sense given dwm's
tagging paradigm.

You can disable it by commenting out lines 543 to 549 in dwm.c, the
"else if(cme->message_type == netatom[NetActiveWindow])" block.
