mouse relocation and window focus when switching desktops

when switching desktops, i find my mouse will sometimes move to a different location (commonly centered on screen), or, even if it remains in the same location on the new desktop, the window the mouse is over doesn't have focus. can anyone else replicate this? It happens intermittently when I use shortcuts (mine are Alt+Windows+Arrow) or Desktop Preview to switch, but I don't have a 100% fully reproducible scenario.

I do have my Windows 7 (64 bit) set up like an X11 focus-follows-mouse behavior (see ... try-hacks/ ) so it's possible this is a windows behavior. It wouldn't be a big deal but it affects the autohotkey script I have set up to switch windows viewtopic.php?f=25&t=1922

Has to be related to the active window tracking. I'll put it on the list of things I have to try to reproduce...
