Thanks for the detailed bug report.
It looks like we were never doing quite the right thing to remove the X
input focus when losing Windows focus.
I've uploaded xorg-server-1.19.3-1 with a fix for this.
Perhaps you could try that and see if it improves things for you?

This is also a long standing bug, but is more complex to fix.
At the moment, clicks outside X windows aren't seen by the server at
all, hence this behaviour.
