The problem is not me, but X. Sloppy focus needs totally
braindamaged hacks in X world, to work in a half-decent way. In
conjunction with pointer warping, sloppy-focus is just hopeless.
You get dozen of EnterNotify triggered focus races, only because
of XWarpPointer() calls.

Thus I recommend trying the current focus model to recheck if it
is really that bad. I think after using it for days it is much
better now.
