Comment 15 for bug 843674

If you opened the Preferences window, the main window loses focus and disappears. The original patch only protected the menu popup from causing the window to close. For me the main window should stay open, as usually I think people would expect to return to the main window after making changes in the Preferences window.

Glad to hear you want to stick at it. There was nothing wrong with your code per say. It did correct the problem, and it's just the experience factor that let me see ways to build upon it.

The remaining cases are ones that will probably be quite difficult to fix (Alt key HUD, Indicators, etc). It's hard to see how Terminator can detect and allow for those.
