New issue 276 by redbeard0531: switching keyboard focus to a wine app is odd

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. run "wine notepad" (should be installed with wine)
2. type some text (works now)
3. use alt-j/k to move focus away from notepad and back
4. type some text (nothing happons)
5. click on notepad
6. type some test (works now)

Note: for step 5 you could also switch to another workspace and back,
hiding and showing notepad, and focus would return.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
wine should be notified of recieving focus, no matter how it occurs.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad 0.8.1 on ArchLinux

Please provide any additional information below.
AwsomeWM also has this issue. Alt-tab to switch focus works in xfwm4
