O.k. I'll test it with other window managers. ATM I don't have
time to do this but I will report back when I've done it.
In the meantime I discovered that emacs does switch
windows/fokus if the graphical emacs is started via
emacsclient -c filename
but not (or at least only in rare occasions) when started via
emacsclient -c -n filename
Perhaps this is helpful?
