Issue 190: FF3 steals focus

New issue report by curolan.zebeth:
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. have firefox 3RC1 open
2. type 'firefox http://google.com/' in a terminal (on the same workspace)

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect firefox to open google in a new tab (this happens).
However, the new tab gets keyboard focus without xmonad noticing, i.e. the
red border is still on urxvt but keypresses go to firefox (urxvt itself
knows what happened because the cursor becomes hollow). If the mouse
pointer was previously on firefox, moving it over urxvt has no effect
because xmonad thinks urxvt already had the focus. Similarly for clicking
on it.
To fix the confusion you have to explicitly move the focus to
another window (such as firefox or a third application) and back to urxvt.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad-darcs, xmonad-contrib-darcs, compiled manually on gentoo linux.

Please provide any additional information below.
This may be a bug in firefox (no idea), but can't xmonad notice what's
going on somehow?

If this error is due to a module from XMonadContrib, please tag this issue
with 'Component-Contrib' below.
