Since the following worked on my F16,

  yum -y fedora-release-rawhide
  yum -y --enablerepo=rawhide update claws\*

I can report that I cannot reproduce the focus issues (previously bug 711257)
with 3.7.10. So, they could be specific to Rawhide, such as changes in
gnome-shell or mutter. What does your yum.log say about the recent updates?

Fedora release 16 (Verne) - Linux 3.1.0-0.rc3.git0.0.fc16.x86_64
loadavg: 0.15 0.18 0.14
