Thanks for reporting this! I am unable to reproduce this on 10.10 Alpha3, but will try to find someone to reproduce this in 10.04 or in a VM.

This definitely didn't used to happen. Do you know if there's been an update to apturl since Lucid release?
Come to think of it, I was playing around with the Compiz focus behaviour recently, so maybe that has something to do with it. I'll have a play.

I noticed you are running 10.10 based on another bug you reported. Is this still an issue?
