Shift + Middle Mouse Button doesn't work when Blender window is inactive

Dear Devs!

Blender 2.8 looks amazing, and I’m learning it right now to switch over after 18 years of 3dsmax.

I have pretty annoying viewport issue, especially when learning. Whenever I alt+tab to another application (to pause a tutorial video for example), and so my Blender window is inactive, when I click back into the viewport with the intention of panning using Shift + Middle Mouse Button, Blender ignores the Shift part and starts rotating the viewport instead.

I think it would improve user experience and the professional feel of the software if this problem would be solved.

Thanks for the great work and looking forward for more Blender!
