Mint 13 / Gnome - unable to set 'sloppy' focus without mous bringing window to top


Have been using Mint 13 for a while, but it has an annoying problem that I can't seem to resolve.

I have window focus set to "sloppy", so that windows come into focus by moving the mouse pointer into them. But I don't want the window to come to the top unless I click it. This is the behaviour I've used for years.

Can't find anything in gnome-tweak-tool or the Cinnamon settings to set this .. any ideas?
