The current behaviour is consistent. The window that had focus before
the one that is closed gets back focus (regardless of whether the
window is now in the master area or not).

To me this behaviour seems desirable. That could be because for me it
seems to be easier to reason about which window I focused before the
closed one than about which window will be the master after I close
the current one.
