The option is grayed out. I have what they call "Focus Under Mouse", which is
like "FocusFollowsMouse" as fvwm has. It's one of the things a GUI is not
usable without with.

Are you sure? I never want that because it would interrupt me, and it's even
likely some undesirable operation will be caused through this, like when a
window receives keystrokes not meant for it.
The only one to switch focus and the stacking order has to be the user ... I
even seem to remember there was some option to change it, but there are so
many options it takes a while to figure it all out.
