Regressions in window focus behavior

The move of update region handling to wineserver
(http://www.winehq.org/hypermail/wine-cvs/2004/12/0100.html) back in
December caused a regression in Hamster 188.8.131.52. After this patch, Hamster
steals focus constantly. When I switch virtual desktops in KDE, it
immediately switches back and reactivates the Hamster window. This is even
with KDE's "Prevent focus stealing" set to Extreme. Hamster can be
downloaded from <http://www.tglsoft.de/misc/hamster_en.htm>.
Another patch from Jan 31
(http://www.winehq.org/hypermail/wine-cvs/2005/01/0724.html) provokes the
same behavior in Remedy. Switching to another desktop or minimizing
the window yanks me back to it immediately.
Both apps seem to be resisting the hide message from the window manager, but
I don't understand the interaction of these patches well enough.
