Description mal 2000-08-05 23:21:47 UTC
Sawfish often does not catch focus correctly.
Open netscape, open messanger and navigator.
Put navigator window above messanger window.

In navigatior window click:
Communicator ->Messanger.

As a result of this the messanger window will 
go on front (as it should be), but then it goes back again.

One more problem is when a "find" dialogue of netscape 
is open. It is often not possible to bring some 
window on top while "find" netscape dialogue is open.
No such problem with Enlightment.

The "one more problem" is fixed already (for future reference though, please
file separate problems as separate reports, if it wasn't fixed it would be hard
to keep track of).

This is an auto-raise misfeature. Popping the menu takes focus away from the
navigator window, when the menu is removed the focus is returned to the
navigator window, thus requeuing the auto-raise..

Works for me in latest rawhide
