[Bug 1268351] [NEW] Nautilus opens image viewer in foreground but viewer does not have focus


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

In Ubuntu 12.04 (with Unity), Nautilus 3.4.2 opens GNOME image viewer
3.4.2 in foreground when I (double)click on the image or open the image
using selection and Enter (speaking about default PNG, JPG, ... file
association). However, the viewer does not have focus. So, I have a
window in foreground which at least partially hides the Nautilus window
but when I press F11 to fullscreen, nothing happens and when I press
Alt+F4,  the Nautilus window is closed. So, I lose the currently opened
folder or folders and I have to open the Nautilus window and navigate to
them again.

This is not such a issue when you use mouse only but when you use
keyboard shortcuts it is very annoying. Moreover, it is inconsistent
because it actually happens only when one other image viewer window is
already open.

How to reproduce:

* open Nautilus and navigate to the folder with images
* open one of the images
[now the image viewer is in the foreground and has focus/context]
* switch back to Nautilus
* open different (or the same) image
[now now the image viewer is in the foreground and does not have context]
* try F11
[nothing happens]
* try Alt+F4
[Nautilus window in the background is closed]

This might be in fact the problem of the GNOME image viewer and not
Nautilus, from user point of view they are very connected.
