[Bug 781931] Re: New windows are moved to front but don't take focus


This bug still exists in latest stable precise and more irritatingly with almost any application.
For instance, I try to login to a web page in Firefox. I don't remember the password, so I start Keepass from Dash. I type my password in Keepass, hit Enter (or at least I think I do) and guess what, I realize I typed in Firefox and submitted the login form with Enter. I could not beleive my eyes. The password field within Keepass windows was even showed as focused with an orange border and a blinking cursor. Only the window was not in focus.
I could mention any other pairs of applications, I can reproduce the problem. Application #1 is running, starting Application #2 from Dash pops up Application #2, but still Application #1 is in focus.
