I don't know much about these things, I would have guessed that the WM is
somewhere in between X and Tk (or Gtk or any other toolkit). Btw., IceWm
uses Gtk, too. So it apparently has nothing to do with the WM using Gtk.

With xev here using Xfce I get the expected behavior, no bogus Enter or
Leave events when clicking into the window. Does that point to Tk as the
culprit? But then, why doesn't it happen with IceWM or FVWM?
