[Bug 572690] [NEW] launched applications steal focus


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

If an application is launched via a gnome panel launcher or the gnome
main menu, its main window gains focus if opened, even if the panel lost
the focus meanwhile.

For example...
What I do:  Editing on gedit, click on a Firefox launcher, then continue to edit.
What happens: When Firefox finally opens, it appears in front and steals the focus from gedit. 
What should happen: Firefox window should open behind gedit silently.

This also has light security implications, someone could enter login
data to firefox addressfield and thus google for example. I've already
accidentally sent passwords to chat comrades this way.
