I build on Sierra.

We have this code

      [win setTabbingMode: NSWindowTabbingModeDisallowed];

in initFrameFromEmacs in nsterm.m. The idea being that since this code
only works in 10.12 and up, we only include it when Emacs is compiled
on 10.12. This might be why you’re not seeing the broken behaviour.

I believe that the emacsformacosx builds are built on 10.9 or 10.10 or
something? I can’t remember exactly. That means this code is not

We can make it a run time check, which would look something like

    if ([win respondsToSelector: @selector(setTabbingMode)])
      [win setTabbingMode: NSWindowTabbingModeDisallowed];

but this will throw up compiler warnings on pre‐Sierra versions of
macOS. I guess that’s maybe just the price to be paid.
