Description Joe Orton 2003-03-05 07:05:58 EST
Description of problem:
(I have no idea whether this is a bug in gnome-terminal, metacity, or something

I have windows stacked in follow order from front to back:

gnome-terminal A, Mozilla, gnome-terminal B

Terminal A has focus, and I mininize it.  Now terminal B is brought in front of
Mozilla, which is not desired behaviour, surely? 8.0 didn't do this, I'm pretty

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. bring up three windows, terminal, non-terminal, terminal in that order
2. minimize the top terminal
Actual results:
Back terminal is brought in front of non-terminal

Expected results:
Non-terminal is left and given focus.

Additional info:
Terminally annoying behaviour.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-03-05 11:22:51 EST
There's code where if you close a dialog it tries to focus the parent window 
of the dialog I think, perhaps that code is overzealous. If you run your 
terminals with --disable-factory it probably won't happen (because they won't be 
"in the same app") - perhaps a workaround.
