The move of update region handling to wineserver 
( back in 
December caused a regression in Hamster  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 <>.

Another patch from Jan 31 
( 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.
