Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 85637
On minimizing one gnome-terminal, another is brought to foreground
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:05 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. bring up three windows, terminal, non-terminal, terminal in that order
2. minimize the top terminal
Back terminal is brought in front of non-terminal
Non-terminal is left and given focus.
Terminally annoying behaviour.
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.
