I can't see a reason for the new window to be fullsceen unless
it requests it. New windows in floating mode get whichever size
they request. If you want them fullscreen, press Mod-f. I tend
to open terminals over fullscreen windows fairly often, and the
current arrangement works perfectly for me.

Currently, new windows from an existing group aren't focused
unless a window from that group is focused. Now that you mention
it, though, I think I'll disable it before the next alpha. It
seems to cause more trouble than it solves. Other than that, new
windows (except for splash windows and docks) are always focused
and raised.
