No I totally disagree. Click to focus makes the life uneccessary harder.
Doing this just for the rare corner case of touching your pointing device by
accident doesn't sound like a very sound reason for it.

Also there are chances your patch doesn't cover all cases for click to focus
behavior correctly. In my impression the proper way would increase LOC
overall. But I need to do a detailed look at it first.

I appreciate this as a patch though.
