Prevent triggers from firing from titlebar buttons?

When I double-click on the Outlook systray icon (on a DF taskbar) to restore (or maximize) it, I'd like it to restore to whichever monitor's taskbar I clicked on.
I achieve this by creating a Window Focused trigger with a Move Window to Mouse Cursor Window action.
Where it gets messy is I also like to use the Move to Next/Previous Monitor titlebar buttons. Now if I move the window using the titlebar button it boomerangs back to the monitor I told it to move from.
Is there a way to prevent the titlebar move firing the Window Focused/Maximized event or stop the Move Window to Mouse Cursor Window action?

Hi Kevin,

This one's a bit tricky, clicking the titlebar button re-focuses the window, causing the trigger to fire again. I've added this to our list to look into, so if we come up with anything we'll be sure to let you know.

I figured there might be something to do with the timing options, but I'm not really getting how those come into play...
In the actions I can add a Wait and in the Match Conditions group there is a Delay before checking match conditions option.
The documentation isn't crystal clear on the effect of these.

Hi Kevin,

The "Delay before checking match conditions" adds a delay before it checks to see if the condition matches the event that just happened. This was mainly added because some applications create a window, but the text doesn't get added until it's fully loaded, so a delay is needed.

The "Wait" timer in the action menu just adds a delay until the next action is fired.

Unfortunately neither of those would help here.
