PopOS application switch allows the mouse to steal focus when it isn't touched

This is a minor but annoying usability issue with PopOS; i hope it’s being tracked somewhere already. When the mouse pointer happens to be positioned anywhere in the middle row of the screen, and the keyboard (alt+tab) is used to switch applications, after a half second or so the pointer will cause the application under it to be selected— even though the mouse/trackpad has not been touched and so clearly there could not have been a user’s intention of going to that application. The same thing can happen to windows/subapplications of an application.
