Ow, please, don't be like that. *You* have a problem, so *you* should
provide all informations about your problem so we can do something about
that. And, basically, giving one single piece of information won't help
anybody. And I asked about “focus” stuff (tada, that's because you have
a _focus_ problem) so you could have guessed in the first place.

In your case, you would like something a bit that “Don't automatically
focus windows when they are raised”, I think.

I'm not a wm expert, but I don't think there is such a thing as “raised
on top” event for a window. I assume that what you send (with
emacsclient or nedit-nc) is a “focus” event, so in this case it would be
ok to focus it.

Please open a bug on Xfce bugzilla (http://bugs.xfce.org) on xfwm4
component (4.4.2 version) asking about that and providing all
informations necessary. (and forward the bug number to this bug report)
