Isabelle2016-RC2 has a new (and annoying) behavior that I don't believe
I have noticed in previous versions.  Under Ubuntu, I have the window manager
set to "focus follows mouse".  But JEdit no longer honors this, in the situation
where I click in the Sidekick panel, then move the mouse to the main edit
window, the focus remains in the Sidekick panel and if I start to type my
typein goes into the Sidekick filter textbox.  To be able to type in the
main window, I have to explicitly click on it to change the focus.

Which version of Ubuntu is this precisely?  An which window manager?

I have now installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with Unity and Unity Tweak Tool to enable "Mouse" focus.

It basically appears to work as I would expect, both in Isabelle2015 and Isabelle2016-RC2, when moving between the outer windows (called "frames" in Java terminology). Within a window, focus follows clicks as usual in Swing, but there are slight differences demending on the look-and-feel, e.g. highlighting of buttons as the mouse moves.

I don't think that Java Swing actually supports focus follows mouse *within* its own windows. In which combination of versions and look-and-feels did you see this working?
