You might also consider adding the following to your .fvwm2rc95:

Style "*" SloppyFocus

`SloppyFocus' is, IMHO, the best focus style yet.  It's `focus follows
mouse' to give focus to a window, but that window doesn't lose focus until
the mouse pointer moves onto another *non-root* window.  Very nice...
