Bug Description

To be honest I'm not sure this is a bug and not a feature, but here goes:

1. Open two apps
2. Middle-click on the focused one
3. Focus changes to the other app, which is brought to front
4. Middle-click on the unfocused one
5. It flickers to front and straight back

Even if it *is* a feature, the app should not flicker...

@Michał,

Part of this is a dup of bug #1204717, but the flickering part is a bug regardless. Let's just change this bug to be the flickering only and let the other bug track if middle clicking the title bar is supposed to lower the window.

summary: - Middle-click on title bar moves the app to back (or flickers it if it's
- already in the back)
+ Middle-click on title bar of an app flickers it if it's already in the
+ back
