Hm, I'm not sure this is a good idea; I get the impression from
Jukka's report that the problem is that focus _stays_ somewhere it
isn't supposed to rather than being _put_ somewhere it shouldn't. This
check might work around some cases, but it doesn't really fix them;
dwm should never attempt to put/stay focus on something non-visible in
the first place (and so far, I haven't found the (missing?) code that
does allows this to happen). I think it's better to trace where the
focussetting goes wrong rather than work around it.

Greetings, Sander.
