[As-users] focus to new window?

Dear AS friends,

In the old AfterStep (1.8.x) I used to have a 
functionality which seems missing in the new 2.0.x 
version. This is that any window comes up on the 
screen unfocused and I need to click to the window 
to bring the focus.

For example, if I press Ctrl-P which is a shortcut 
for a printing dialog in many programs, the dialog 
window pops up on the screen unfocused. So, I need 
explicitely point the mouse, click and bring it to 
focus. I don't use the option when the focus 
follows the mouse position. The fact that any 
window comes up unfocused in the new AS really 
frustrates me and I have no idea where I should 
look to change it.

Previously, in the old AS, I used to hit Ctrl-P 
and immediately press Enter if I know that default 
settings are fine for printing. Now I need to lift 
a hand from the keyboard and click with the mouse 
to focus a window which slows my work down.

Please help.
