Bug Description

Middle mouse click on title bar will lower window; but it does not switch the focus to the window which was raised above it.

1) Open a gedit app window
2) Open a calc app
3) Middle click the mouse on the calculator title bar.

It should lower the calculator and raise the gedit window as well as switch the focus to gedit. But it doesnt switch the focus.

summary: - Lowering window by middle click doesn't switch focus to raised window
+ [Regression] Lowering window by middle click doesn't switch focus to
+ raised window

Failing AP test confirms this to be a regression:

unity.tests.test_panel.PanelGrabAreaTests.test_lower_the_maximized_window_works

This could also be a compiz bug so im adding it in until a solution has been found.
