Window focus regression

It's getting harder to fix something without breaking something else :)

In part this is good news as it shows how much is now working, but puts in
to contrast the problem of regression testing especially for this type of
issue. I don't sure that this type of problem can be easily replicated by
the proposed API/script based regression testing.

The problem this patch 'fixed' was one of those subtle messaging problems
where a single message continually bounced between two windows and then only
in unmanaged mode.

I'll take another look at this and see if the root cause is perhaps
somewhere else.
