There is a thread on the upstream devel list about this... 
It's unclear to me at least what causes the issue. ;( 

What do you have for: 

Automatically give focus to newly started applications.
Automatically raise windows when they receive focus.

In your window manager prefs? Does changing these affect the behavior? 
Also, do you see it only with Terminal and Thunar? Or is it everything?

Yep. The menu handling was totally redone in 4.6, and the editor was
not ready to ship. They decided that this functionality was not worth
blocking the entire release on, so it's not available. ;( 
It should be back better and stronger in 4.8.

Take a look at: 


for info on customizing menus in 4.6. 

Hope that helps some.
