OK, in that case it seems like a bug.

Consider the 2 views which have 3 windows and where the master is
multi-tagged and the stack is different.

Let's say I have focus and mouse pointer in the upper stack window. I
switch to the other view and focus is the master. I switch back and
focus is the upper stack window.

If I have focus in the upper stack window but the mouse pointer is in
the lower stack window then after switching away and back the lower
window has focus.

So it seems that focus switches to the window under the mouse pointer on
returning. However if I move the mouse pointer into the master window of
the intermediate view (which already had focus) and then back to the
upper stack window (transferring focus) then the master has focus when I
return to my first view.

I hope that is clear.

This is with 0.6 built with config.h copied from config.default.h and
the only change being to the master window width.
