No.  As I wrote in reply to Jason's question, focus is switched only
when mouse crosses a frame boundary, just moving it within a frame
that doesn't have focus does not yet give back focus to that frame.

"Resume policy" implies that the policy was suspended.  But it wasn't
suspended, it's just that on MS-Windows focus is switched only when
mouse enters or exits a frame, not because the mouse pointer moved.
