Out of curiosity I checked for that focus issue with the latest
pre-compiled Emacs for Windows provided by nqmacs.sf.net.

It's quite easy to reproduce: Start Emacs (in my case there was no
site or user init file present) and type `C-x 5 2' to open a new
frame.  This frame will be on top of the original frame and have
focus.  Now move the mouse pointer onto an icon in the toolbar of the
new frame.  As soon as the tooltip wants to show up, the original
frame will come to front (but not get the focus).
