Bug Description

If the window opens up using indicator menu, sometimes it shows up in front, but not get focus.

Steps to reproduce:

1. (Optional) Choose an application that use indicators. Examples: Clementine, ktorrent, tomboy, liferea. Launch it if needed.

2. Press left mouse button on the indicator. Drag mose down to the menu, select "activate" or equivalent. Release the left mouse button.

Actual result: the application will start or show itself up, but will not get focus. Moreover, it will start as a top window, and you can not guess, if it is active or not, because it will have no frameborder.

Expected results: the application will start or show itself and get focus.
