Havoc Pennington from Redhat has commented on this bug¹:

"I don't know if it's the problem, but the timestamp sent by that
Emacs code is gibberish, which could break something even if it isn't
the issue here.  (Assuming I understand the Emacs code.)

I don't believe raise-frame is intended to unconditionally work in
metacity, btw. This is legitimate window manager behavior and no spec
requires that the WM unconditionally honors a raise request."
