Focus of new windows in metacity

On basic Fedora Core 3 gnome (using the Metacity window
damager), and traditional focus-follows-mouse, how does one
prevent the focus from changing when a new window is opened?

At least for me, the principle of least astonishment is
continuously broken when a newly opened window grabs the focus
from right under my mouse pointer (and I need to move the
pointer out of my window and then back in to regain it).
