I can't reproduce this bug with Metacity with focus-follows-mouse on.

I'm surprised this issue has reappeared; the whole point of the current
active selection implementation is that Emacs grabs the primary
selection only after executing a command (in the command loop).  Simply
switching to an Emacs frame should not trigger it---could it be that
your Emacs is customized to do something funky with the command loop?
