Public bug reported:

I have dual X screen setup on my kubuntu (not Xinerama).
My problem is that whenever I close a window the focus jumps to the other screen (if I'm on the first screen it jumps to the second but if I'm on the second it jumps to the first). If there are no windows on the other screen the focus still goes there (no window becomes active on the current screen). Very annoying behavior.

The only options I could find in systemsettings is in the Window
Behavior section "Separate screen focus" and "Active screen follows
mouse" but they have no effect. (Tooltips from the Shift+F1 help say
that they are Xinerama options.)
