What does 'Activate window when scrolling' do?

I thought this option would make the window under the cursor become active and be the foreground window. But for me, it usually doesn't do anything different or just sometimes makes the taskbar button for that window flash.

Is there an option to make the scrolling window come to the foreground?

It is supposed to do that and it works here.
Are you using the installed or portable version?

What version of Windows (Windows goes to every effort to STOP applications from changing and steeling focus and this causes XMBC to break sometimes - esp. if you get a flashing icon in the taskbar). There isnt anything more I can do about that but its interesting that it seems to behave differently on different systems.

Thanks,
Phil

Ok, thanks for the clarification. I'm using Windows 7 (professional, 64bit). I'm curious too why it doesn't work for me.

I know there are other applications or os-tweaks to make the window under the mouse come into focus after a set time (or instantly), so if it works for them reliably, then perhaps x-mouse should use the same method? For example, txmouse works on my system: TXMouse (of course, no source code so it doesn't really help you...).
