The fix now checks on every focus. This is far too much when the files are on slow filesystems (network shares).

Formerly it checked when you switch from another application back to lazarus. For example when you edit a file via the explorer or another editor and the switch to lazarus the IDE will check the editor files and ask if it should revert the file.

Please give an example why the IDE should check more often.

Maybe ApplicationActivate does not work under Windows any more?

AppActive is always in FFlags, so TApplication.Activate exits immediately. AppActive
is always in FFlags because TApplication.Deactivate doesn't remove it. I think it is
because it assumes that if the application doesn't have the focus anymore, that
GetFocus returns a null handle. This is not true, it returns "The handle to the
window with the keyboard focus indicates success. NULL indicates that the calling
thread's message queue does not have an associated window with the keyboard focus."

So at least for windows that check should be removed from from TApplication.Deactivate.

GetFocus test.
It tests how GetFocus behaves on form's Activation, Deactivation and during Active or Inactive state (using TTimer)
