Yes; thanks.   I have "focus under mouse" , and the
left button set to activate and raise all the windows,
active or inactive.  Indeed the focus IS under the
mouse as I can see by typing, but the obscured lower
window, whether active or inactive, whether the focus
is on it or not, will not come the front when I click
or when I hover
... the only way seems to be to go the the titlebar
menu.  ?
