With 2.11.90 it still happens. Easy example: type "gnome-terminal &" in a terminal emulator in the lower right corner. The new terminal window will appear in the upper left. Focus will move to the new window (whenever it appears) even though the pointer remains in the original window. If the new window is slow to appear, the focus will move at an unpredictable time in the future. It's annoying as hell. I use focus-follows-pointer and do not wish the system to ever do anything else.
I also have a hell of a time with firefox snarfing the focus if the pointer passes over it briefly on the way to some other window.
That problem has not gone away either.
