It works fine for me using the Debian Emacs 21 package (started with
-q --no-site-file), together with Window Maker with the settings:
"click to focus", "do not let applications receive the click used to
focus windows". The first mouse click of any kind gives the window
focus, the second click performs its normal Emacs action, as I would
expect. Perhaps your problem is window-manager-specific?
