Definitely not, I use gedit as a test application only. But I see what's
the problem now--it only works from freshly started terminal. So all the
terminals that were running at the moment I set focus_new_windows to
strict didn't pick that setting and continue to open new windows
focused. Isn't that a bug in gnome-terminal (or metacity)?
