Bug Description

Binary package hint: avant-window-navigator

Currently, if you click on an item in a stack, the stack stays open, until focus is changed (if ever) to the new window.
This makes the user doubt whether he properly selected the item he wanted and delays feedback.
Also, if focus is not lost by the stack applet, it stays open, contrarily to the expected behavior, i.e close once wanted object is chosen.

My problem is your opposite.
I have gnome set to select whatever window my cursor is over without clicking on that window
but if awn appears over that window, moving the cursor from the applet icon over to the applet window, would for a split second select the window under awn .. and that closes the applet window. Consequently, the applet closes when i try to move my mouse up towards it
