When SizeToContent is set on a wpf window it ignores the ShowActivated=false setting

Steps to reproduce

Unzip the HoverIssuemahapps zip file
Open and run the solution
Move the mouse over the 'hover here' area
expected result:
Window1 stays active window as CheckWindow has ShowActivated=False
Actual result:
CheckWindow becomes activated

This was working in Mahapps.Metro version 1.4.2

Is there a workaround for this? (window still needs to size to it's content.
