XFce New window focus on spawned process

I'm spawning an xterm window from inside of a gui-based (Motif) process, and I have all of the correct settings in XFce's window manager (click to activate window, new window gets focus), but when I spawn an xterm window, it doesn't get focus. It appears as though the window manager is confused by the fact that it is a child process or something. If I spawn an xterm with the -e option (to execute a command in the xterm), and have it execute another xterm, THAT one gets the focus fine, and is put on top, as it should be. Also, does anyone know how to make an XFce window stay on top automatically? Thanks a bunch!
