    Given that if you press the button longer it also doesn't
    follow the link, the
    tooltip tells you that it does, even without focus, and doesn't
    mention that
    mouse-2 does the job too (it's masked by mouse-1), I think it would only
    create further confusion.

I made the same suggestion as Stefan, and I don't think it would lead to
further confusion. As I mentioned, that is pretty much the behavior that
Windows users experience every day (the first click establishes focus). And
I can testify that it has saved my derriere more than once, when I
accidentally clicked something (e.g. button) in a window that didn't have
the focus. Of course, mouse-follows-focus would no doubt overrule this
behavior, so it wouldn't help in that case.
