The "focus stealing prevention" is a feature. It avoid having windows popping on top of what you are doing and break your workflow (like if you are typing some text or a password it'll keep beeing at the right place and you will not send your password because a gaim dialog just jumped while you where using an another application)

If you have some issues in normal cases with application please open a bug on the application with the detail about how you start it
