Can you tell me a bit more about that ? This should not happen.

xfwm4 gives focus back to the window that had focus previously.

Let's take an example:

A has focus
You map B
B has focus
You hide B
A gets focus.

This behavious is dofferent from Metacity that goves focus to the window
on top of the list (which is not a correct behaviour IMO)

Do you experience something different ? If o, can you give me more
details about what you really get ? And what focus model you use (do you
focus newly mapped windows, are you in focus follow mouse ,etc.)
