i also noticed that the focus behavior is rather inconsistent. some
xfce programs such as the run box (most annyoing) completly ignore the
focus tips and just take focus when they load. also sometimes i still
get things that just pop up whenever they feel like it. checking the
no-automatic focus should apply to everything as its raelly annyoing
on slower computers.
