As said in OP, I can't get auto raise works for fluxbox. Anybody can do

This is what I tried: 

create a new user. In its home directory, there are no .x* .X* files, nor
the .fluxbox directory. 

echo exec fluxbox > ~/.xsession

then startx. 

Ie, in above X/fluxbox setting, everything is taken from system. However,
having choosing Configuration > Focus Model > Auto Raise, I still can't
get the auto raise feature. So I think that this issue is related to how
grml configure X/fluxbox by default. 

Please help. I can't do without the auto raise feature.
