[vox] Fluxbox, openbox

I've decided to abandon WindowMaker (which served me well until the 
advent of GTK+2) because of a bug that causes the focus to cycle back 
and forth very quickly between two GTK+2 windows under certain common 
circumstances. (The bug only occurs in the sloppy focus modes)

I looked at fluxbox, and quickly found that in its sloppy focus modes, 
a click anywhere in the window's content region will raise the window 
(hence, working in a word processor with the intent to keep another 
window, like an AIM window hovering above it doesn't work very well).

So I looked at openbox, which doesn't show minimized windows anywere 
except for its windows menu (fluxbox shows them right on the slit).

Does anybody know of anything that addresses one of these problems? (so 
I can switch to either fluxbox or blackbox and have it cover both 
features correctly (I looked at the most recent WindowMaker CVS 
snapshot and found that it still hadn't solved the GTK2 interaction
