NetBeans, Focus and WindowList

As you’ve realised, this is one of Java’s many bad facets, and has nothing to do with FVWM, I’m afraid.

Lenience is your best bet. If that doesn’t help, there’s nothing else that can be done. It’s down to the application to receive focus. The fact that Java applications break the ICCCM in more ways than one, is only something Sun can help you with.

When you’ve finished, I’m marking this as a duplicate thread since I’ve answered it before.
