If another program steals focus, which might happen at any time and of
no direct consequence of an automation step taken by WebDriver, the
specification says explicitly, under chapter 8 on ‘Command Contexts’:

Yes.  If an action performed by WebDriver causes the browser to freeze,
that implementation isn’t in conformance with the specification.
