That should be _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW, but thank you, that is exactly the
problem, and you probably saved me a lot of time finding that.
gnome-globalmenu uses this (via a handler for libwnck's
active_window_changed event) to determine which menu bar to show.

So, for the global menu bar to work, this should not be set. And if this
is called via focus-in-hook, it already gets an argument 'grab. It
currently ignores any arguments, but it can be made to use it without
any problems.

I will prepare a patch to only set _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW for 'normal focus
events later.
