With 'grouping' set to 'always', when I left-click a group, I am unable to activate the window of my choice within that group. As I mouse over the grouped icons, a black outline appears to show the current position of the window, but when left-clicking on it, nothing happens. Activation status does not change, nor does window position.

I can reproduce with ArchLinux.

oh, I forgot: it's against xfce4-panel-4.8.2

> Downstream bug report in Fedora:
I'm not sure it is the same, mousing over the group doesn't show any outline here, the windows are either visible dut don't react at all or are hidden beneath others.
Me too here, using gentoo.
I can confirm it's not possible to bring a window to focus when window grouping is set to 'always'. Using xfce4-panel-4.8.2 on Lunar Linux.

Alright, hope the fix trickles down soon to Arch Linux, I can confirm this with the currently up to date xfce4-panel on Arch, 4.8.2-1. I noticed it ever since the update to 4.8.x on several boxes and am affected because I use a lot of windows and depend on them being grouped.
