It's not often I agree with Mike, and he'd know... ;-) But I strongly
agree in this case. Even worse is when windows automatically flick to
the front just because the mouse passed over them.
I don't mind that the scroll wheel works on the window under the mouse,
without having to activate it. But other aspects of focus follows mouse
I find to be a nuisance.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
