Summary: Requesters unnecesary steal focus

Initial Comment:
Since version 0.75cvs+ Gaim cummulates error messages
in single window which solves problem with plenty of
them floating on the display. 

There's still somehow related issue remaining - each
time new error is "added" to the existing list of
errors, the container window (which lacks window title
btw), gets focus. This behaviour is very annoying. I
either suggest to make this window unfocused by default
or get this configurable.

The same applies to 'connection progress' window. It
tolerable it gets focus on application startup, but if
the server often drops and reconnects, user face this
window periodically (I personally even more often) and
in such case giving a focus to this window is pointles
for at least one reason: reconnect window popups mostly
unexpected. As the user is not expecting anything to
steal the focus from the current application, chances
to accidentaly cancel the connection (i.e. by the ENTER
keystroke "captured" by the just-focused progress
window) are quite high.
