"NoFocus" in the WinList style totally fixes it.  It keeps WinList from
"stealing" the focus from the first window opened.  I knew about NoFocus, but I
was under the impression that it would not allow it to accept input at all,
resulting in a WinList that was unusable (ie. unable to click on it to raise a
window).  I was wrong in that aspect(should have spent more time reading the
man pages or even experimenting with it).

Thanks for all the help.  Anyone else bothered by this little quirk should do
as mentioned above.
