Focus does not return to main window if clicking on userWindow #1769

Brief summary of issue / Description of requested feature:

I use userWindows to display hyperlinked lists of areas and if I click on said hyperlink, code executes to autowalk to the area. Once in the area, I have to click on the main window again to give it back focus before I can use either keybinds or type in the command bar.

Steps to reproduce the issue / Reasons for adding feature:

  1. Create a userWindow
  2. Click on said user window
  3. Try a hotkey

Error output / Expected result of feature

Nothing happens until you give focus back to main window.

Extra information, such as Mudlet version, operating system and ideas for how to solve / implement:

One possible solution might be to add a giveFocus() function, so people can choose whether to return focus to the main window

BugFix: restore focus to main TConsole after mouse click in other ones
This is less than perfect because it cannot totally identify what the
particular TConsole instance is associated with - to help me to debug it
I needed to add some extra code that assigns values to the
(QString) TConsole::mConsoleName to cover the miniConsoles, buffers, user
windows and Editor error window.

As well as attempting to close issue Mudlet#1783 I think the addition of the
setFocusPolicy(Qt::NoFocus) to the mudlet::openWindow(...) method will also
cure Mudlet#1769.
