Since dist-upgrading 12.04 LTS in such a manner as resulted in an upgrade of GNOME from 3.2.x to 3.4.1, auto_raise is broken.
I have the usual auto_raise* settings set in gconf, in apps -> metacity -> general. But the functionality just doesn't work anymore.
Focus follows mouse works fine, yes, but windows just no longer raise after a short delay. I have tried both gconf and tweak tool-based remedies, to no avail.
Any ideas on how to work around this? Auto-raise is a really integral part of my workflow.
