O.k. I'll test it with other window managers.  ATM I don't have
time to do this but I will report back when I've done it.

In the meantime I discovered that emacs does switch
windows/fokus if the graphical emacs is started via 

emacsclient -c  filename

but not (or at least only in rare occasions) when started via

emacsclient -c -n  filename

Perhaps this is helpful?

Ciao, Gregor
