This is not a Metacity issue? It's not just system-config-*. The new version opens all X applications launched from the command line under the terminal window. This is very, very inconvenient and actually has had me lauching several instances of applications before I realized where the windows went. If there are lots of windows open in the workspace, finding the newly started app becomes a pain. Is there some sort of desing rationale behind this or is it just a bug? Wouldn't you expect the user to want to _see_ the program she/he started? I launch things from the command line more often than from the menus. I work in a scientific lab and have installed Fedora on two dozen desktops, whose users also work primarily using the command line. I was going to upgrade to FC5 but this is giving me second thoughts. At the very least this 'feature' should be configurable, if it is going to go into FC5.

This is in fact a duplicate of #178389.

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience. [This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

The information we've requested above is required in order to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the issue if it is still present. Since there have not been any updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we requested additional information, we're assuming the problem is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem. Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you still experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora release and can provide the information previously requested, please feel free to reopen the bug report. Thank you in advance.
