Currently windows get focused/foregrounded on mouse button push. It would be nice that it happens only on mouse button release (like m$ windows).
The scenario is :
* open Thunar maximised and open a folder containing media (mp3, avi, etc.)
* run VLC or any other media player and open playlist
* slide an mp3 or an avi to playlist
when clicking on the mp3/avi, thunar gets foregrounded and you have to slide to VLC taskbar icon to bring it foreground and then only you can drop mp3/avi in playlist.
Everytime you slide an mp3/avi, this happens again. Not very handy when you want to add 20 noncontiguous mp3/avi in your playlist...
One could say a workaround is not to maximise thunar. I have a small screen, this not an option for me.
