can't get focus if moving fast from taskbar to application window

following problem appears with my fresh installed xfce 4.0.4:

I switch to another application window by clicking the taskbar and
then move fast to the application window (moving the mouse pointer over the desktop and
panel area). Then the pointer is above my desired window but the window does not get the focus.
If I do the procedure in a slow manner everything works as expected. I get the focus
with no problem. My window manager adjustments are "focus following mouse" and
"new window is getting its focus automatically".
Any ideas to avoid this behaviour ? It seems to be a bug.
