i'd vote mwm hints are seen as explicit if present, and if not the type is a
hint and the wm may do whatever it wants.

btw - whats up with qt's icccm take_focus handling? if you send a take_focus
client message (as per icccm) WITHOUT first setting the focus on the window - qt
doesnt honor the request and take the focus (even though it advertises that it
does take focus protocol). the icccm doesnt say the window must have been
focused first :) have i monumentally misunderstood the icccm or is there some
deeper meaning behind doing this?

ie this works:

this does not:

gtk advertises take focus proto and it does work with this. is it possible you
guys have a bug? :)
