[wmii] wrong cursor highlighted

although I'm generally more than pleased with wmii, I have one
minor issue that keeps bugging me. Sometimes I wind up with
several xterms and Emacs instances that all have a highlighted
cursor (as if all of them had the input focus.) Since I tend to
look at the cursor instead of the window title bar I keep typing
stuff into the wrong window. It would be nice if this could be
somehow resolved. (If not, I guess I can live with it.) My
uneducated guess is, that this has something to do with 'focus
follows mouse.'

Here is how to reproduce it:

1. open XTerm in View "1"
2. open another XTerm in view "1"
3. move second XTerm to the right to create a second column
4. open a third XTerm
5. tag the third XTerm with "2"
6. switch to view "2"
7. open a fourth XTerm and move it to the right to create a new column
8. _using the mouse_ focus the left XTerm in view "2"
9. switch to view "1"
10. switch back to view "2"
11. again using the mouse focus the right XTerm
12. switch back to view "1"
13. now in view "1" in both XTerm the cursor is highlighted

This happens with both xterm and aterm. (I didn't try Emacs.)

Saludos and thanks for this great wm,
