Description of problem:
I noticed a change this week such that when opening up more than one
gnome-terminal session, the second one does not receive focus so that
when the first is running full screen the second is never seen unless
you manually switch to it by clicking in the bottom panel icon or via
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up gnome-terminal
2. Set it to full screen
3. Open up second gnome-terminal
Actual Results: Second session does not appear, but bottom panel
shows it's been started.
Expected Results: Second terminal should overlay the first and have
This leads the user to think that the new gnome-terminal failed to
launch. I noticed the problem today.
Also, windows seem to stay visible and focused unless the window is
clicked w/ the mouse.
Example: Mozilla running full screen. Gnome-terminal brought to front
by clicking on the panel button. Clicking on the fullscreen mozilla
does not fully change focus to mozilla. gnome-terminal is still
present and hides part of the mozilla window. This might be a useful
feature, but seems odd behavior.
If you click on the gnome-terminal window, then click again on the
full screen window, gnome-terminal is hid and mozilla is fully focused
w/o gnome-terminal hiding parts of the browser.

resolved in some way upstream by GNOME 2.8
