I didn't have time to test your patch yet, but if I understood you
correctly here is how I found that bug originally and why I think that
your suggestion is somewhat counter intuitiv:

I sometimes run my terminal emulator in fullscreen mode and every now
and then I decrypt a gpg file from that terminal emulator. Since I use
gpg-agent a pinentry gtk window is spawned if I didn't enter my
passphrase so far with your patch I wouldn't notice that the window
spawned at all. With my patch the pinentry window would be focused, I
could enter the passphrase and make my terminal emulator window
fullscreen again afterwards which is imho more intuitiv.

I will none the less test your patch as soon as I return home from work
today just take this into consideration for now.
