Mouse movement when klicking into the window
character moves when I just try to activate the window per mouseklick

This particular problem occurs when playing ADOM in a window, activating another window and then clicking back into the ADOM window in order to continue playing. The problem is that the click does not only activate the window, but also move the character into a certain direction or makes him wait a turn when I click at his position. Actually that way I wasted turns in more than one dangerous situation and at least to me it is not obvious how to reactivate the window without wasting a turn.
I'd suggest to make that one click to activate the window not count as a movement-klick, if that is possible.

If you're playing on Windows, you can use Alt-Tab to give focus back to the ADOM window so that it doesn't move, but just gets focus back. (Not that it means this isn't a bug, I'm just suggesting a workaround)

For me, I'd gladly disable click-to-move entirely, no matter whether the window already has focus or not. I never want to use it.

Yeah, it's not actually a bug, but at least it's quite anoying in some situations. Especially when recording videos I just have to click at other tabs sometimes and almost always I mess this particular thing up and waste a turn. In my eyes this is definitely not the perfect solution and if it can be improved without big effort, I think it should be done. I'd very much appreciate it.

This seems to be a system dependent effect because it works fine on OSX (i.e. the first click on the window is not recognized as a movement command). On Windows, even if the window is in the background (without focus) the mouse is still recognized and can be used to scroll the window contents. Definitely a problem.
