      Description

      Windows: right now we use combination of different mouse and focus events to simulate non-focusable behavior. This works unstably and might stop working in the future since the implementation relies on current behavior. Instead, we should try to use hooks to filter-out focus events from toplevel.

      Unix: we use override_redirect to make sure our windows are non-focusable. This works for focus, but makes problems to z-order and desktop navigation. Instead, we should investigate how modern WMs(Metacity 2.6, 2.4.55, Kwin 3.x) work well with WM_TAKE_FOCUS and start using it for them
