Using Ctrl+C to copy a figure to clipboard will also copy the actual currentfigure, not the one which has focus.

This is on a self built 4.0 release. When one tries to print a figure using the "save as" item in the "File" menu of a figure window, the current figure (the one pointed by "gcf" function) is printed instead of the one associated with the window of the menu.

Steps to reproduce: draw 2 figures

figure (1); axes (); title ("Fig 1")
figure (2); axes (); title ("Fig 2") # figure 2 is now the current figure

Now, try to print figure 1 using the File menu : the output has title "Fig 2".

In Matlab (tested on R2013A) selecting a figure window with the mouse (and thus a menu) or navigating windows using Alt+tab makes the figure associated with the last window having focus current.
I don't know if this behavior is desirable in Octave. If so this bug will be solved at the same time. Thoughs?
