Drew uses `redirect-frame-focus' and from what I can tell after
experimenting a bit with his code it seems to work.

Yes.  I sometimes used the symbol 'dedicated instead of 'dedicate so the
*Completions* window did not get softly dedicated.  Should be fixed now.

Tassilo please tell us what you see now in your cases.
