deja-dup-monitor steals focus

Bug Description


I've deja-dup installed on my (debian) machine at home, it is configured to backup to a SMB share (using gio). The password of that share is not saved on the machine.

When deja-dup-monitor decides it's time to take a new backup it opens a window requesting a password for that SMB share. The problem is that this window is stealing the focus of the current application and is even displayed above full screen videos.

This is pretty annoying.

I'm using gnome-shell in a wayland session if that matters

Hrm, in my GNOME shell, it says "Backups is ready" to let you know that deja-dup has requested attention, but isn't stealing it. We actively try to avoid the bug you're describing, actually.

Do you have any gnome-shell extensions installed or a non-standard environment in some way?

I don't think so, the only extensions enabled are Gpaste and Openweather

and It's gnome-shell 3.22 FTR
