My impression is that giving a window input focus is very definitely a
WM policy issue. When I switched to IceWM, I turned used these
variables to set the input focus policy:
# Focus normal window when initially mapped
# FocusOnMap=1 # 0/1
# Focus dialog window when initially mapped
FocusOnMapTransient=1 # 0/1
# Focus dialog window when initially mapped only if parent frame focused
FocusOnMapTransientActive=1 # 0/1
which gave me the effect that I typically want. There are times,
however, when its annoying, mostly because I spent 12 years working
with WM's that didn't do this (either because they couldn't, or I
never bothered to configure them so that they did).
