Description Tim Waugh 2004-08-09 11:30:05 EDT
Description of problem:
New terminal windows appear behind old ones, leaving no window with
focus.  Is this annoying behaviour intentional?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-terminal from the menu.
2. Type in it (just 'x' is enough)
3. Start gnome-terminal from the menu.
Actual results:
The new window appears behind the old; focus is lost.

Expected results:
New window appears on top of the old, with focus.

It was due to an incomplete implementation of focus stealing
prevention (note that this behavior was disabled in the stable 2.8.5
and 2.8.6 releases of metacity).  See
