Do you have a window manager with a click-to-focus policy (and an
according setting of focus-follows-mouse to nil)?  Because if you
don't, you are comparing apples and oranges.

Only if you use click-to-focus in your window manager.  Anyway, it
sounds to me like mouse-autoselect-window in connection with
click-to-focus would be a rather useless setting, anyway.  So the
problem appears more like a user configuration error than anything
