Description of problem:

When I start up new apps [like system-config-securitylevel, system-config-users]
the new window opens under the existing terminals and is not visisble. 

This behavior appears to be a bit random - as some apps open windows on top of
existing windows - where as some at the bottom.

Not sure if this is a metacity issue [but I'm filing here]

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login gnome
2. open a couple of gnome-terminals [from the menu]
3. from one of the gnome-terminals - run  system-config-securitylevel

Actual results:

Popup for 'root passwd' comes up over the existing windows, but the actual
application window is burried behind existing windows

Expected results:

system-config-securitylevel shoud open over existing windows
