Gnome focus

Hello all,

Is there a way to make sawfish window manager focus on a gui when you click it but not make it raise to the top? I know that motif and CDE (soalris) allow you to focus with out raising the windows. THANKS

remove the "raise and pass-thru" binding on window clicks in sawfish-ui.


Have fun!
