I've always kept auto-raise turned off. I frequently have multiple overlapping windows open, and sometimes raising the one I'm typing into would hide something I need to see.

Right-click in one and you'll see, "Add to Panel," "Delete This Panel," etc. No, I don't know the CLI path for the window auto-raise delay.
