Not sure if this is fixed upstream, but in 0.97-1ubuntu1 I get this problem in KDE 4.11.2 (Kubuntu 13.10). I have a bit more info to add. If I alt+tab to another window, then attempt to show terminator, then I hit this bug. However, if I immediately hide then show terminator, I regain focus as expected.

Workaround in KDE: navigate to System Settings > Workspace Appearance and Behaviour > Window Behaviour > Focus > Focus stealing prevention.

Change setting from Low to None.

FWIW tilda, guake and yakuake were all fine without this setting change.
