I doubt GetFocus is bugged. 
What is quite probable is that the focus/active window handling is not
behaving like Windows does (if there is really *one*  behaviour 
in the different versions of Windows, that is).

Another possibility (less probable in this case) could be that the Ms
doc  about WM_SYS* messages is inaccurate or incomplete.
