I can reproduces this. I have build a patch, but this patch must check
by the author from the comment/changes in focus.jl (this patch remove
some changes from the author).

The kde problems can fix with window-rules.

-  From sawfish-1.5.0, enter-notify events invoked by grab are
-  ignored in enter-exit and enter-only. This has a down side, too,
-  but first let us see what's the intention.
-  The problem that this solves is when you press Alt F2 in KDE, the
-  Run Command popup appears and gets focused (if focus-when-mapped is
-  non-nil), you start typing, the completion list pops up and takes
-  focus, then you type a bit further and the completion list
-  disappears.  Focus used to revert to the window the pointer was in,
-  which usually was not the Run Command popup.  transient-unmap-window
-  tries hard to get it right, then the grab-induced enter-notify
-  brought focus to the wrong window anyway.
-  The problem that this causes is when you open the KDE main menu by
-  clicking the K icon in the panel, move the mouse into some
-  application window and click to dismiss the open menu, focus reverts
-  to the panel. You have to move the pointer out of the application
-  window and back in to get it focused.
