[Lazarus] IDE focused window after app terminates

I never noticed this before, but I'm working on a project where I switch 
very fast and frequently between coding and running the program, then 
back to coding... repeat.

The annoyance I never noticed before is that when my application 
terminates (run via F9 from within the IDE), the Main Window of Lazarus 
IDE always gets focus, instead of the Source Editor window. So this 
forces me to use the mouse to click the Source Editor window to get 
focus, before I can make my next small code change.

I'm using a 2-3 month old Lazarus Trunk (Lazarus 1.9.0 r55733 FPC 3.0.4 
x86_64-freebsd-gtk2). Maybe I missed it, but does the IDE have an option 
to tell it to focus the Source Editor window instead of the Main IDE 
window after the debugged application terminates? If so, where is that
