[SOLVED} Problem with App Launches in IceWM 1.2.37

I just upgraded to IceWM 1.2.37 from 1.2.23. When I launch an app that is set to open in another workspace via $HOME/.icewm/winoptions; e.g.

rutilt.Rutilt.workspace: 3
it merely shows up as an icon on the toolbar, instead of switching to the new workspace.
There's a new option file in $HOME/.icewm named "focus_mode." Changing FocusMode=1 to FocusMode=0 in this file fixes the problem. There's also a setting in the Start menu called Settings->Focus that can be set to "Custom" to fix the focus_mode file.
