This thread is turning into a bit of monologue. Does nobody else have
issues with their window manager? Or even better, solved them?

Adam, keep talking. It is an interesting monologue.

Yes, I'd like to find out a way to keep windows from stealing focus if
at all possible.  I tried a couple of window managers with gnome a long
time ago, but had no luck.

What exactly do you mean by stealing focus? I see different behaviour
from different window managers. For instance enlightenment gives focus
to the window that the mouse is over, but without bringing it forward.

Not sure if what you mean, but it really annoys me that in gnome 2.10,
when you open an app then, go back to a different app and keep using it
while waiting for the new one to load, as soon as the new one finishes
loading and displays, it steals the focus - very annoying. I heard a
rumour that this is fixed in 2.12

Yes, this is exactly what I'm talking about. Long-loading programs like Mozilla and OpenOffice.org are annoying this way. I thought the fault was with Metacity though.

Happens with enlightenment as well. You're right, it is annoying, but it only happens once a day or so, for me at least. There is a bug report on it but it seems to be filed against epiphany:
