To shamelessly necro a super old thread, does anyone else have any previous
experience debugging this? I had a brief look at why this focus stealing
happens (eg. with Chrome on another tab and doing `google-chrome-stable foo`),
but with not much success yet. I guess next I'll instrument c->isurgent, since
it seems these windows have XUrgencyHint set, which seems potentially related.
