I have also observed the same behavior in the Windows version. 
However, I don't think that this is something which has changed 
recently, as it also happens in various earlier versions of KiCad as 

If I can find some time I will take a look at the source code for 
Cvpcb and see if I can figure out how to modify the existing 
behavior. (To hazard a guess, some additional code would probably be 
required to switch the focus from the Footprint window back to the 
Cvpcb window again. Do any of the other developers have a good 
understanding of the source code for Cvpcb? I haven't really looked 
at it myself so far, other than for fine-tuning the "Display Options" 
dialog box.)
