window focus working better?

Greetings all!
I just happened to run an installer with Wine and I forgot to trap it 
inside a desktop, and to my surprise, it did NOT put a big blank window 
up front, so I was able to use it normally.  I had not used one of these 
in a while, so I tried a couple others, and they worked normally too 
(outside of desktop mode).  Looking back through the logs, I think this 
patch may have fixed that issue, at least for a lot of cases:

I couldn't see any discussion of this in here, so I was wondering if 
anyone else has seen similar results.  I also tried several full-screen 
games that historically gave me keyboard focus trouble, and every one of 
them got keyboard input.  I have not changed anything with my window 
manager, and reversing that patch causes the problem to return.

So, is this working now for anyone else?  Did I overlook the discussion?
