Oops. My apologies... Hmm, and I though I'd checked it carefully...
just goes to show how little I use the mouse I guess.

I've just noticed another bug, which seems to also be the result of the
new focus model:

* Make a view with two xterms in floating mode, make sure they're
* Focus the first one created, and put the mouse over the overlapping region
* Try to move to another view, and watch as all hell breaks loose [1]

All this leads me to believe that sloppy raise is a bad idea, (on the
other hand sloppy _focus_ without raising is good IMO).


[1] "all hell breaks loose" meaning that focus rapidly switches between
the xterms on the first view, and the clients in the view you're trying
to look at.
