Focus stealing and KDVI inverse search

KDVI is a nice program, which can do an "inverse search", i.e. by doing a middle-click on a text it will throw you to that text position in your Latex editor (I'm using Kile for example). By default, KDE prevent Kile from popping up in front of KDVI, which sucks and really bugs me. Fortunately there is a way to fix this behavior:

In KDE Control Center find Desktop/Window-Specific Settings.
There add a new setting (detecting Kile window as the whole application).
In Workarounds tab select "Focus stealing prevention": "Force", "None"

It'll do the trick :-)

P.S. Can't figure out how to do the same in beryl :-(
