Before my previous post I tested with hg tip and didn't hit your bug. Then I
realized that hg tip includes the change that fixed it for you, so now I've
retested with one before hg tip and I'm still not getting your bug. I was able
to open a terminal, then open openoffice (which goes floating fullscreen,
hiding the terminal), focus the terminal using MODKEY+j (still hidden behind
openoffice), and successfully run a command in the terminal. From my
understanding of your report, you were not able to do this.

It looks like we just have the auto-floating in common, which at least has a
reasonable explanation for why dwm is doing it (whether or not it should is a
different can of worms). The focus problem could very well be specific to
certain compiler versions.
