What operating system are you working on?  X11 will act quite 
differently than Windows.  

Either way, it sounds like redrawing the window as having focus + 
actually placing focus there isn't an atomic operation.  I'm not sure 
if this is something we can do anything about, since it's probably an 
issue outside of Wing.

Thanks for reporting this.
