Never tried. But now I set it to 'off'.

At first sight, it does not change anything.

I expect that if I activate the main Lazarus window, that all other windows
are also activated. This is not so (although I'm not sure it is supposed to
happen in Lazarus ?).

In each case, when compiling, the messages window is neither raised nor focused.
