Race(?) on hiding a window leaves the window unresponsive and not hidden

Python Gtk 3 reproducer

Bug when a window:

1. Is in focus.
2. Receives a focus-out event
3. Hides itself
4. Would get back focus due to the event in (2) if (3) didn't happen.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Run this script, which has two windows W and Y
2. Move Y window to the left
3. Click inside Y to show W again
4. Click inside W and it prints a message from its button-press-event
5. W has focus, now click the Y window's close button
6. W is not hidden and does not respond to click events

GTK version: 3.22

The good news is this is already fixed in git master apparently. I can only reproduce with 4.12.
