You may be right of course (which is why I asked :))

Just for the record, it is possible with native API calls on Mac OS X (which is where I'd like to implement the feature); if I'm right on how these calls are wrapped in Qt, something like

void enterMouse(QEvent *e)

probably doesn't work only because setFocus() requires that the window be active (= to the front). Adding an activateWindow() before the setFocus() call  gives FFM, but with window raising.
