I remember this behavior since I don't know when.  If someone knows
how to avoid it, explanations and/or patches are welcome.

Thanks, but that's not a good suggestion, IMO.  For example, I
frequently work with Emacs windows that are in the background, and
have "focus follows mouse" set so that I could type into such windows.

In any case, when the mouse is inside an Emacs frame, Emacs gets a
Windows message about that, and it should process that message; it
cannot just disregard it.  So I don't see how your suggestion could
be implemented in practice.
