The solution is simple (in a way), but that's not it. When they are not starting a drag or performing some other special action, people expect the click, not the release, to focus the window.

I'm prohibited from posting information about my company on G+, because Google does not have a way for this information to be archived and recorded. Twitter and Facebook have no such issues, of course, because they treat external APIs seriously.
