Description Anze Zagar 2008-05-31 17:30:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Having focus_new_windows set to its default value (i.e. smart), new windows
never get focus which is supposed to be more a 'strict' behaviour.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Fedora 9 in Gnome having Metacity its default WM
2. Open gnome-terminal
3. Open another gnome-terminal
Actual results:
The first gnome-terminal will keep focus and remain displayed above the newly
opened gnome-terminal

Expected results:
The newly opened gnome-terminal should take focus and raise above the old one

Additional info:
As a workaround, I can restart metacity with 'metacity --replace' and behaviour
is changed back to normal/expected.

Sorry. Turns out that Devil's pie was causing this. Adding '(focus)' to its
settings file fixed this problem. Interesting that I haven't had such experience
with any of the previous releases of Fedora although I have always been using
Devil's pie.
